    Dear Sphinx,

    I appreciate your reply to the Susan Blackmore letter and it will take me a
    while to put together a complete reply. I see that in many instances you
    misunderstood what I was trying to say, and that's on my head. I'll try to
    clear up these areas in my reply. I think the field you are working in is
    the most appropriate for this subject because memes are as much artifacts as
    shards of pottery or stone knives. They can be used to trace the course of
    civilization. People in your field already do this, but I suspect you miss
    a lot by not including many of the mental tools people use -- the shards of
    which can only be found in the forms of objects and the sounds of language.
