    Those are Pirsig's words, paraphrased. At the intellectual level you
    think for yourself. At the social level, you think like everyone else.
    The intellectual level builds on the social by expanding the values of
    freedom and experience. In the same way, the social level builds on the
    biological, and the biological on the organic.
