Exactly. And many mimicries _could_ be part of human nature and culture
simply thrust upon it by genetic accident, a much bigger part than
perhaps we're willing to admit. The ability to mimic certainly is.
But the memesinthemind does not admit of mimicry in this way. At least,
I don't think it does.
