    Okay, then, please tell me what you actually said, if you didn't say you and someone else both have different and unique sets of
    'information' about the Grand Canyon in your brains. That is the way I read this.

    > I.e., my memory of the Grand Canyon is *not* a meme.

    I don't see that following from your statement at all. What then, is this meme of which you speak, and why didn't you mention it?

    Yes, and it saves information. Let me know when any person can debate every point at all times.
