One problem would be how we could ascribe a meme
per individual. He also reflects on variations of an internal
meme and takes it to its absurd conclusion, which points
to a mapping problem. I wonder why we couldn't ascribe
more than one copy of the *same* meme to each individual.
<< So, is then in that respect not the ' learning' itself ( in the sense
of ' performing ' something not the ' meme ' !?
Than the problem of ascribing the meme per individual would be
solved _ he/ she is learning, but how and where is then the ' contextual '
frame where this specific memeset is due !?
How 's that for an answer !?
Then how do we do quantification? If I'm trying to learn

There is none ! If learning or reading would be the ' meme ',
there would be no difference, it would be * same * meme
per individual, only the concept/ context/ environment would
be different, but that would then be another ' memepool '....
