    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.


    In other words, at the very least, this thought becomes part of the environment for other thoughts and thus influences what the memes (in or out of the mind) must adjust to in the process of their evolution.

    But because the culture pool lies within the minds of the people who provide the environment for it, thoughts do make up part of the culture pool.
