    Gene-environment interactions may also be precisely what memes are. No
    less, no more. Culture itself is a genetic interaction with the
    environment of nature and society.

    What else do we need to know, what other entities do we need to create?
    Memes are handy statistical referents in this scenario, but, they need
    only to be column headings in a categorization scheme.
