Hi Joe Dees -

>The idea of meaning-representation itself.
Well, for me, the first meme has always been the cave paintings. I don't
know how or why some creature demanded to itself to sketch those
markings, but, it must have been a fantastic moment indeed.
And yes, until that first scratch, there was no first meme.
