I believe that memes are the fundamental elements of our 'social contract'
(glue). In our Western culture they come from ancient oral tales which
cemented values and atitudes into a social culture. "We need each other for
survival" is an early meme. Memes, for me, are then encoded into narratives
and transmitted intergenerationally.
