    Yes, the question can be asked if memetics as such and in itself adds something/ nothing to the transmission of cultural traits_ if thus memetics shouldn 't be treated as just another form of propagation for trendsetting memes of behavior/ traits and habits.

    If thus, now people know, have heard of " memes " , that they don 't begin to talk about their specific cultural/ social traits and habits and in that respect transmit their context ( within a meme- tical frame set out by ' memetics ' itself and memes themselves).
