    <Which helps the 'meme' replicate. I understand there is research in
    press (Wheeler) which identifies 9 different communities of scientists
    using variations in their interpretatation of 'gene'. Signifiers get
    replicated but do not have to show fidelity of 'signified' (as I have
    asserted before)>


    Because people have their own interpretations of what a word such as meme
    means it also contributes to the memetic drift that memes undergo.
