The example I recall was about a rapist, I think it was in Florida, could be
wrong though. I have the details somewhere, but....you know what it's
What I recall was that the guy had some defect by which his behavior was
altered and he couldn 't control his bodyfunctions like he should do.
I think it was in the beginning a genetic defect which did work thru ' to
the brain by which signals were bad received and thus bad signals were
to be send back....
I have to find the article....
> I would not consider braindamage to be a 'pathomeme'
Maye I wouldn 't either, but it was the best term I could think of.
But like the above describes, braindamage could result in the inplan-
tation of a ' bad ' meme....
Hope this helps, if not...
