In this case finding the correct level to present at is about as
difficult as compuring certain measures.I tend to be at a higher level
than most of the audience can easily understand, but in some cases it
generates thoughtful questions and prehaps gets some of them to think

I should add that this is for a US audience in Las Vegas.
I have problems discussing level III, because I tend to discribe it as
a single Universe with an infinte number of branching points.
