    You could compare this to "heureka!" moments. New memes
    would come into play. I mean, it has to happen. If copying of
    sensory received memes is the only way of memes-handling then
    how did our language came into play. There once was the first
    person who used a certain word and all the other's copied it. That
    this person came up with the new word/idea is still a result of
    former meme-input. There's no big mistery involved i think, it's just
    a brain-process which is still not researched.
