    You also exist and you go by the name of Joe. Are you the name, "Joe," or
    are you something more than just the name? Velocity, just as you described
    it, is a measure of change. It's a tool we use to describe change. Are
    velocity and change the same thing? The condition we describe is external.
    The tool we use to describe it is internal and part of our map of the world.
      In other words, a meme.
