Interesting thought and reasonably corrrect.  All ideas and beliefs
are likely be weighted.  Thoughts and memories interact with mental
viruses of the mind and become effected by them.  The question is what
does one do if your mental hard drive is effected by such a thought?

I had the priviledge of transmitting a new virsus to the mind of
Bernie Baars called the Correlational Opponent-Processing virus.  He said
his mind hurt for days.  He seems to be find today without any lasting
effect.  Of course the virus of information he transmitted to me
was immediately integrated under the COP model.  So it seems some
virus are stronger than others.   Only time will tell which ones
will be transmitted into the future.
