DNA does not "allow" anything, nor are memes linked to 'correspong genes'.
DNA is a structure of chemicals. These chemicals can and must do certain
things under certain conditions. DNA is not a purposeful thing.
Biologically, memes are embedded (as is any idea) in the neural connections
of the brain, and at an entirely different level structurally than that of
