Delius is also cited by Dawkins somewhere. He published a paper in
which he claimed that a meme is a constellation of activatable neurons.
Delius, J. (1991). The nature of culture. The Tinbergen Legacy. M. S.
Dawkins, T. R. Halliday and R. Dawkins. London, Chapman and Hall.
He sent me a copy of it - I have it somewhere.
