    Not necessarily ! This ' thought ' allows others to get shaped, to be transmited. This ' thought ' boost the ones that are being used_ or vice versa, this ' thought ' takes up space in the brain and let other memes fade away. This ' thought ' is not directly involved in the cultural intercourse, but its presence is being felt. It is there, somewhere taking up space/ time. As such it is not part of the culture pool, but its possible potential shapes ideas.
