    Just the form of the object(s) has to be the same.
    My view is that two memes aren't identical if their form differs.

    Writing 'help' and screaming 'help' are two different memes. The
    written word and the recorded sound are different memes. They are
    related but not identical.

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
