    No, it is dependent upon a multiplicity of similar, but not identical, minds. The precise encodings of the memes do not have to be identical; rather they must, when interacting with differing yet similar cognitive gestalts, result in those gestalts producing recognizably similar behaviors (including bodily action and its subsets communication and artifact creation).

    And where did these rules come from? If you reproduced one of the artifacts left by an Indian tribe to the degree that it couldn't be distinguished from the original, wouldn't you have received the information contained in the making of it? All that was lost is the information concerning the use of it.
