Here I agree with KMO, in that arguing for the Truth of a proposition (other than as a rhetorical device) militates against Level-3 consciousness.

<<Because the act of arguing is not serving your purpose? Because "the Truth" is a strictly personal thing?>>

Because the test of whether a meme is desirable is the results produced by adopting it, not its Truth (which is really consistency with your current worldview).
