    Aargh indeed. Since beme1 is never and cannot be beme2, there is no generalizing of behavior in the bemetic model. There is location of similarity as an agent of cultural continuance, but, no, I really don't see much hope of prediction from _any_ of the cultural, memetic, or bemetic models, actually.
