    I thought that was your bent, and I was a little surprised about your
    even talking about conceptual memes. :-) You did seem to be saying that
    only false statements could be memes, rathen than saying that *no*
    statements are memes (except as behaviors, OC). In that case their truth
    or falsity should be irrelevant, no?
