Subject: RE: about omniscience through memetics
The memespace over which memes battle with each other is finite, defined by the brains of people.
<< In the proper way of the context, yes, but we can put our knowledge,
our truths upon computer- files and this unlimited.
Memespace is in that view unfinite
The space over which memes battle is not confined or defined by the
brains of people. In a sense it is, we make after all the computers and
the discs, but IMO memes have in themselves parts by which they con-
vince people to get them propagated and to convince people to built
faster and more better machines to get them propagated.
If is that is " true ", memespace can be unlimited...
( I am, because we are) just that
