    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 !?
