    The hammmer and use of the hammer are conceptually
    different memes. Hammers propagate by using
    manufacturing techniques, which are memes of one
    category. The other category consists of how to
    actually use it: possible throwing techniques.
    Two different sets of memes: one artifactual and
    one behavioristic.
