Wade is now reduced to maintaining that reading a written message and hearing the same message spoken cannot possibly communicate that selfsame message. He is also reduced to arguing that "God is love" and "God is loathed" are necessarily closer together in meaning than "God is love" and "God is infinite caring" because they unquestionably are more similar performances. These are the patent and blatant absurdities to which one is inexorably led when one follows the postulated premises of the memeisthemotion model to their strange conclusions.
