Serge Daney, wrote once that " information " has no right to
call itself informative, because information is structural one-
sided, it can never reveal the totality of a/ one situation.
He called, paradoxal, the fiction movie in essence informative
because we ain 't confronted with documented facts, but just
with " situated grammar " ,[ descriptive words ] namely that
each conflict implies two parties and thus two equal important
points of view.
The choise has to be made as it seems between one- sided
facts and the plural imagery of fiction.
The profit of such an enterprise which shows the situation as
a combined action of two parties, is the shaking off, of partia-
lity ( demagogism and propaganda) and the achievement of one

In memetic terms, to understand to its full extend any meme
we must consider its background, context, etc.
Any meme is getting born, lives and dies with and within its
own descriptive, situated grammar. Any difference within and
of the background, surrounding or environment changes the
meme its meaning.
Moreover, the point of view of any other is something we can 't
grasp to its full extend anyway: - even if we do consider to move
over to the other side, than the earlier, own party becomes the
What we need is a point of view far beyond of what the parties
has to say. This point of view mustn 't be able to identify itself
within a strict boundary, but needs to be an abstractum in res-
pect to the totality of the situation.
What we thus actually do when we speak, is talking with ab-
stract metaphors collectively known to us without ever reaching
a full understanding/ commitment/ etc.
The only way out is an extreme use of words ( one meaning),
and thus in its path a detached use of grammar.
One meaning - one meme !?
