There is a large, and IMHO, very valid school of meaning that
regards the form something takes as, well, totally dependent
upon the information it contains. Or is. Inseparable, really,
form and information.
Form follows information in genes, after all, and certainly does
in art and technology. Why not in memetics?
And, how is one to know that the same information is in two
Which is a possibility if 'regardless of the form it takes' is correct.
