<< One, I am not a freak !! Please !!!!
Two, I don 't think communication or contact is the same as influence.
That is the process where we are talking about.
And in memetics we do the same !
But we talk about how ideas/ traits or behaviors get replicated and to
what extend some ideas are choosen above others_ what makes it for
a good story that it gets itself replicated !?
Influence or selection pressure !?
( I am, because we are)
