Subject: CRASH CONTAGION
Kas Graham of www.memetics.co.uk kindly forwarded a link to today's BBC
news report of what appears to be an example of contagion (thank you Kas).
I wonder if anyone seriously thinks that this would have happened had 9-11
Like I did forwarded in an earlier post today, it all can come down to childs-
play and I hasten to say, a very disturbing one.
But, of course crashing planes into buildings is a reminder of what happened
on the 11/ 09 and indeed the coastgard and the FBI responded accordingly.
But, than again, an example of ( memetic) contaigon !? After all this time !?
And than a boy of 15 !? Possible but not a very everyday example, though !
Here in Belgium, a 17 year old burned down a church on New Years Day,
not one of use saw a connection with the KKK ! It' s all about context I
We must wait and see if the crash was an accident or a deliberate act.
Maybe he was just playing in conformity with the chivalric honor and be-
havior of being part of ' Top Gun ' !?
