    Hi all,

    I say,

    In the beginning there was the word !
    No !! In the beginning there was the emotion !

    Words are just recent phenomenons, they replace the emotion, like the
    trot replaced the gallop, while the gallop is the natural way of the horse.
    People learn it to trot. [ They] removed people from the emotional poetry
    by letting him reason, that is to say, by letting him chatter, isn 't it !?

    Louis- Ferdinand CÚline

    A lovely way to describe what ' memes ' actually do, don 't you think !?

    Regards,

    Kenneth
