My basic question is what the brain does to make me like a certain
song, piece of art, worldview etc. while others don't like it. And
this is selection in my eyes.
I don't understand meme-theory if it is explained as to be
independent from dna. Memes freely floating around in heads. I don't
believe in this. People like certain memes more than others and they
output certain memes, not all they got as input. So they select memes!
