You already did. :-)

But I have to dissent. I'd characterise the L2/L3 difference in this context as: experience, in itself, is always serial, but in L3 (or thereabouts) you can get past the belief that there's really only one thing going on, and allow for parallelism. (It's also, for those of a technical bent, about becoming more aware of pattern recognition and less focussed on symbolic processing.)
