I'm... unsure. Not when they're in your head... they can do weird stuff, like give you autonomic training... other things that I won't talk about. They can also help you with math problems, sometimes. So... Nietzsche and Jung reviled each other? For being nerds? Or was Nietzsche just oblivious? Do some kinds of nerds unite with the common herd in their revilement of other nerds? Do the Shakespeare buffs turn up their noses at the pinball machine collectors? This would tend to suggest that nerd-dom isn't just from the crooked communication that you mentioned before; rather, it's about personal habits?
