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.
