    Same problem as I just mentioned for number 3 (novel hybrids) - this
    transmission thing is too restrictive. What if I think of a behaviour,
    but never pass it on or act it out - how is that thing in my head
    qualitatively different from a meme received by transmission, once it is
    in my head (apart from it's origin)?
