    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.
