    It was by Michael Chance of the Sub-department of Ethology, University of Birmingham (UK) in a letter entitled "The mind: ostrich or meme-bearer" in RAIN, vol. 19, 12-13. RAIN was the "Royal Anthropological Institute Newsletter" and later became "Anthropology Today". Chance's quote is:
    "... just as the individual's anatomical structure is also a reflection of genetic combinatorial competence, so also minds are a relection of a new 'memetic' competence" (quotes around memetic used in original)
