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.
