    Hi Wade,

    << Potential memes !? In a short intermezzo with Chris Taylor, IIRC, I
    did refere to what I called ' Future Memes '.
    Today's behavior/ actions/ assumptions/ etc will give rise to memes in the
    future !!
    Such memes evolve into niches created with the current meme set !
    The meme (set) already thrives but is not yet determinated.
    And yes, already niches are occupied by it as well in the present as well
    in the future- one day we will bump into them.
    There are not only potential memes possible but also potential art.
    Don 't give up hope, Wade !
