    The fact that every coin stamped in a particular mint is not identical would be enough, I think, to state that each meme (or beme, to unconfuse the models), is also unique.

    Whether or not a single internal neural pattern is established, is, I also think, a matter for future elucidation, (and not something that I am ready to accept at this point, regardless of model), and I do hope it becomes possible, because-

    That there is only one behavior per person is self-evident, but maybe that's just as much of a claim.
