    It is retained within the venue of which it eventually will be part. You can look at this as they were ' future memes ', not yet expressed, but already present waiting to emerge. There is always knowledge not yet known, always ideas not yet thought off, behaviors not yet observed, performances not yet expressed, inter- pretions not yet processed, conclusions not yet commented upon,....

    It is assimilated in and within the venue, it becomes part of the venue, it becomes part of the then anew grundnorm. The cognitive gestalt is just a part of the venue. You have ' evolution ' all the time...

    A wonderful concept and not so hard to understand once you get the hang of it.....
