    No, I'm not out, I'm filling up the bases and you keep walking them in after every pitch even while you re-examine the slo-mo.

    It can only be culturally re-performed if it is observed, as you say. Memetics thus requires performance. Since the performance itself requires other agents and environments than just one individual's thoughts, what occurs during performance is the meme.

    QED, thrice.
