I didn't feel like sending you yet more email, so here it is on Livejournal.

I thought of the rest of that conversation I mentioned having with Shawn.

What I proposed was that people are patterns - that the essence of what a person is, is a strategy for approaching life, a meme basically. And that perhaps there is an affinity between similar memes, such that when one recognizes another that is similar, that it feels a selfishly motivated desire to support it and bond with it.

The idea of people as patterns is sort of interesting. I really need to read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance again.

Anyway, that was all.
