Danny is of the neurons in the mind school:
"I think when referring to memes, we actually are
referring to a pattern in the brain that can be
transferred to another person via translation to
language or some other symbolic representation, and
that can then be transmitted from the second person to
a third person without losing much informational
content (copying fidelity).... So a meme is an
abstract concept that can survive
transmission/translation from one brain to another. A
successful meme is one that does so frequently."
