    that's just a different form of storage. if there is an artifact,
    someone created it. so if some human designed and created an artifact
    5000 years ago he still had genes and he just put his memes into this

    or do you think of some nature-made artifact? i could see the point,
    for example, a lot of artists get inspired by nature. so is a tree a
    meme? or is it the interpretation the artist did which actually build
