    Hi Joe Dees -

    >>What was the first meme?
    >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.
