I see your point. Interesting...so a damaged brain might be damaged in a way
that let pathogenic memes in.
The consequence of the meme at work would really be the consequence of the
brain damage. An instructing construct.
I wonder if the damaged brain would be equally undefended against all memes,
or just certain kinds of memes? Your thoughts?
I say forget trying to sort through your files for the rapist incident. If
your files are like mine...
Cheers, I look forward to your thoughts.
