    Actually, I really see no mechanism that reduces us to automata from the
    memes-are-behavior-only stance.

    After all, all I am saying is that _memes_ are behavior, not that all of
    our behaviors are automatic or reducible.

    And memes are behaviors that have a large and complex process (the
    meme-factory) churning them out, and that factory is complex and
    indeterminate- it is the brain/mind.

    And it is a stance, a perspective, not a declaration.
