I know is a lot more advanced, but if its more advanced that we can understand, how we can talk about that on the EG?

This might also explain the differences between the various empires and why 'defecting' from one empire to another might be one of the few things left that causes social and interpersonal stress since doing so presumably involves or implies a rejection of ones 'home' morality in favor of another. It might also mean that moving from one empire to another involves some degree of conditioning (possibly quite subtle). This might also tie into the issues behind the Version War to some degree, although I'm a bit fuzzy on that aspect of things.

So, what is the current canon about ontologies and memetics?  Should i say in the article of ontology that ontologies and Memetics are very different things and all sophonts in OA can tell the difference or should i say modosophont can confuse one with another because of points in common.

Also, the various interstellar megacorps might have/have had some form of 'corporate religion' or at least 'corporate morality' to help make themselves work over interstellar distances.

Corporate religions is something i think can be very common.
