    Salice, that was what Vincent tried to explain to you all this time.
    Althought, IMO that form- stuff needs more thought, but the rest will do
    fine... for me anyway.
    The form by which " form " can than be saved, would be something like
    the memetic landscape we talked about earlier.
    Wilkins posted something a few months ago about geology and furrows
    to compare how memes would be ' stored ' in the brain.
    Stored here used to make it easy on myself...
