    I suppose it's semantic. Yes, all those things are necessary for memes to occur. What you have described above is my 'cultural venue', which includes humans and their performances, and all the methods used to produce these performances, and only with all of these things working together is cultural evolution possible.

    Just my point.

    Thanks, Kenneth, for at least understanding it.
