    Ok Joe, this sounds right to me, just one question ! What makes a pattern or whatever similar so that one is excitated by performing it and another by observing it !?

    What is in the meme that makes it in both occasions transferable, out of the brain and absorb by the other !?

    You can perform a behavior of which you are completely wild about, but for me it could stay death meat, what makes it different of the one mentioned above !?
