Hence the "self-contradictory" bit. One of my favourite neural tickles, that- always subscribing to worldviews that know for certain that you can't know anything for certain:
Me: Ha- all ideas are just the expression of cultural replicators. There is no truth.
Other: And what's your basis for promoting that claim?
Me: Erm... cos I like it?
Other: Well, I don't. So can I go now?
Me: Erm- well... no, hang on...
