Not interesting to whom?
Yes, your DNA contains genes -- but what's your point?
Are you asserting that memes have to be transmitted but where and how they
originate is not important? Bilogists thought it was important to
understand where genes came from and how they were created and I think
knowing how memes are created is equally important. To me it's the
foundation of whatever science results from the study of memes.
