Hi Philip Jonkers -
>Therefore memes *can* be inferred from ideas.
But what am I to infer this meme _from_?
Where is this idea?
How do I know there is an idea?
.....Unless, I perceive a behavior, or understand the meaning intended to
be given to an artefact, through memetic behavior?
I think the behavior-only stance is the most capable of being consistent.
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
