>Thanks Gilbert but what about kids laughing at very early age?
Good question. I think at that stage it is much more genuinely a
reflection of the emotional state of the child, than with adults who
laugh. But as the child ages they learn to manipulate their emotions
to get what they want.
That's a pretty lame answer but it's pretty basic too. I'm sure there
are whole chapters of books on this... not that I'm an expert, just
an armchair memetics philosopher. :-)
