Congratulations on your new book! :-)
> Memes in the mind - yes. Memes in behaviour and/or artefacts - it depends what you mean by "behaviour" and "artefacts": memes in artefacts like books and CDs - definitely; memes in spoked wheels (to use one of Dennett's examples) - no. Memes, on my view, are fundamentally representational, so anything that isn't a representation can't be a meme.
So a spoked wheel is not a meme because is a realization, not a
representation? Do I understand you correctly?
