    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.

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
