That works better. Guess you would have to add in an A-mode too. I would
put writing in the C-mode because it is just using language in another
form and a film of someone performing an activity in the I-mode. The A-mode
would apply in instances when an artifact devoid of C-mode or I-mode
conveys function. Such an artifact would qualify as a mode of memetic
transfer because it was created by someone with a meme for the purpose of
implementing the meme.

My initial impulse was to agree completely. However I am not sure that
there are any concepts that could not be bodily demonstrated with a little
creativity. I do think though that the more abstract something is the more
difficult it is to demonstrate bodily and the more efficient language
becomes by comparison.
