    I agree.

    So- you are calling 'common thoughts' - 'memes'.

    (And I am calling 'common behaviors' - 'bemes'. We might actually have a marriage of sorts there. I just demand that culture requires behavior, not just common thoughts.)

    I just think, that because we are all homo sapiens living on the same world, that common thoughts would be just that- totally unwonderful happenstances of the way we are.

    I still think it's what we do with them that matters.
