    The memetic transmission chain is brain -> behaviour -> brain...

    Memes are transmitted between brains via behaviour, and between instances
    of behaviour via brains.

    "Behaviour" includes speaking, listening, writing, reading, creation of
    artifacts and examination of them, so artifacts are recorded behaviour.

    So memes have to be encoded both in brains and in behaviour.

    Is there any part of that you don't understand????
