  1. Each of us has a purpose here. When the memes are quiet, it is possible to feel when we are on purpose and when we are off purpose.

This seems to imply that the purpose is somehow separate from all memes. Does the idea of Level 3 depend on this assumption? What if purpose can be chosen consciously and/or transmitted memetically? Where would that leave Level 3?
