I am just interested,
What are memes than from your point of view !?
It confuses me a little bit, to read that memes can transfer ideas etc.
Out of what consist than those ideas, if I follow the applied logic, if they
are not memes !?
Do you see memes as only those entities which transfer ideas, etc and not
so mush as the tranferred information !? Or do I miss something !?
Please eloborate !
