    Hi Wade, okay... with `potential' I mean `with the
    potential of expression'. With potential memes I mean
    memes laying dormant in the brain, abstractly
    speaking, waiting to be called upon and expressed
    or utilized if needed. Until that moment there is
    no way of telling whether the host contains them.
