    Yes, I can be mean, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt, however
    poor your punning skills may be. When contemplating semonal references there
    may be vast differences.

    After just re-reading both Gatherer's article and Wilkins's article I'm a
    bit more perplexed by the possiblities of relations between Dawkins B and
    the historical engram/mnemon memory trace concepts and also the relation
    beteen Dawkins B and the L-meme or Lynchian mnemon. Instead of higlighting
    similarity, distinctions should also be made.

    Wilkins may object to my singular focus on one minor aspect of his article,
    but I was reading his article after Gatherer's where the Lynchian
    homoderivative mnemon and Dawkins B were discussed and my one track mind may
    have derailed a bit. Back to the drawing board.
