Here is your central error to understanding the performance model.
It is _not_ 'a performed meme'. No, it ain't.
In the performance model, the performance _is_ the meme.
Big, solid difference. It ain't semantic, it's definitional.
And you ain't got it. And all your following arguments are irrelevant,
especially those concerning latency as a property of memes in their
imagined subclass of memory.

No, there was nothing 'not present' in that particular venue. All the
information was there, nothing from the outside of that venue or the
performances within it was needed.

Any meme, any performance, may attain a meaning for the observer. But
it doesn't have to. Someone can _act_ without either meaning or
knowledge. "Comprehension is not requisite for cooperation."
