<< Each performance of swaying the bat is in its own right,
yes indeed, unique, and the behaviors in different people quite
the same, but isn 't the overall performance- the way of swaying
the bat- not the same !?
Taking into account the knowledge of your analogy, isn 't the
driving for all museumdwellers not the same, even we take every starting
point; every bump in the road; any given time into account !?
The marker we look at is different, so is the driving than not the
( the meme) we must look at !? Reaching the museum is then not the ' meme ', the driving to get to it in the first place would be !?
