That memes ebb and flow is perhaps self-evident, but, let's look at the
'room in our lives' statement above. As we become a global village, for so we are indeed becoming, perhaps this statement is becoming more and more self-evident, and the fact we are losing cultures and cultural artifacts are losing cultural utility are not just effects of domination of more powerful memes, but the cruel side-effect of an actual content limit.
