Recursive Editing Levels

   Recursive editing levels are important and useful features of Emacs,
but they can seem like malfunctions to the user who does not understand

   If the mode line has square brackets `[...]' around the parentheses
that contain the names of the major and minor modes, you have entered a
recursive editing level.  If you did not do this on purpose, or if you
don't understand what that means, you should just get out of the
recursive editing level.  To do so, type `M-x top-level'.  This is
called getting back to top level.  Note: Recursive Edit.
