"Logic" in my view isn't a meme, as it's a way of thinking.
'It's illogical captain" (and other variations of Mr Spock's common lines)
is a meme, on the other hand, as it is a thought or recorded expression that
is transmitted to others.
Can logic be transmitted? Perhaps the idea of logic can be, but the thing
itself IMHO cannot.
