    Sitting with a generally seated group, on a bench, is indeed sitting. It is also not walking, standing, running, jogging, ad infinitum.

    Sitting in a church, alone, while the congregation is standing in song,
    (assuming one is capable of standing and singing) is most definitely
    'not standing'.

    Where and how one behaves _in opposition_ is the behavior we are speaking of, because of what one is _not_ doing.

    Sitting is, or is not, 'not walking', dependant upon circumstance.

    Which is more memetic, though?
