Maybe there a distinction should be made between memes
`in the head' and memes `out in the open'.
That is, on the one hand neural programs dealing
with expression of behavior, meme communication
(such as speech) or processes concerned with memes
((analytic) thinking for example). On the other
hand, we have behaviors and artifacts immediately
ready for imitation and transmission.
As an analogy with physics the former category might
be called potential memes, the latter kinetic memes.
But perhaps latent and actual memes may qualify
as better names.
