    A meme is a unit of information in the mind whose existence influences the behavior of the host such that more copies of itself get created in other minds.

    A virus of the mind is a collection of memes, artifacts, and minds that by its nature tends to replicate to other minds.

    Behavior is the expression of a mind influenced by memes.
