    So what gets communicated, a meme? So the meme is in the
    brain? No, the idea/concept is in the brain. The tool for transmitting
    this structure is the meme. So the two memes are two memes.
    Two different ways of transmitting an idea.

    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)
