You have also called it the 'performance-only' model, and denigrated the 'memeinthemind' model in favor of it. This would indicate, notwithstanding your statement above, a denial of the internal, including the cognitive storage, mutation, and selection, of memes. My position is that both the internal and the external are necessary; the internal for storage, mutation and selection, and the external for replication. Remember that it does not matter what happens between if the within possesses no understanding; if I am feral, and do not possess knowledge of written or spoken language, it does not matter what you say to me or which book you hand me; thus both external written storage and between-people verbal communication depend upon learned and internally stored templates. Neither the internal nor the external, neither the cognitive/perceived/interpreted nor the performative/willed, is sificient; both are necessary for memetic transmission, replication and evolution to proceed.
