    I am new to this list and also, except for a few magazine
    articles over the last couple of years, a novice in the field of
    memetics. My academic background, although somewhat antiquated,
    covers subjects like Linguistics, Psychology and Education.

    It is possible that you have covered the following questions in
    the past, in which case I shall appreciate it if you could give
    me some guidance as to where I can delve in the archives:

    1. Does all knowledge consist of memes or memeplexes?

    2. Are all memes received/perceived through sensory

    3. Is it also possible to acquire memes through experience,
    where the knowledge is not the direct result of recent

    Any explanation, reference to websites or other media will be
    sincerely appreciated.
