    Well, what I meant, was, is there any reason behind _acting_ on ideas to
    know where they came from?

    With some degree of hero worship, yeah, I suppose- one wants to do what
    one's hero did, if one can.

    But, on the other hand, there ain't any real reason to trace the etiology
    of one's memories at all times, or even in general.
