At any rate, if there is no performance, there is nothing to apprehend, and
nothing to form any thoughts about or to perform again.
Thoughts held within the brain and non-performance are both culturally
useless, and I'm still at a loss to see how they are not.
Show me what I didn't do today, and I'll tell you what you were thinking....
Where do the memes come from that you transmit through performance? Or do
you think we invent them on the spot as we perform without any forethought?
Even if we manufacture them by performing them, we have to shape them out of
something in our minds. It's the information that comprises the meme, not
the transmission. The transmission can take many forms and often does.
