    By decomposing the meme in smaller descriptive snippets, which are already
    you can communicate (by language) the new meme across the target-group.
    If you would have said you ran an Eniac computer 50 years ago, people would
    usually gaze at you in a questioning manner. You will then go on to

    functionalities, analogies,
    metaphores and so on.
