The structure of body and brain is a result of DNA.
If we can receive, send and store memes it is because
our DNA allowed us to do it. If the handling of memes
in one's brain would be independent from the corresponding
DNA it could have positive, negative or no influence
on the spreading of DNA.
If the meme mechanism in one's brain would have
negative or no influence on the survival of one's genes it
wouldn't have survived.
Therefore memes relate to genes in a contributing way.
Memes serve to the survival of their corresponding genes.
