    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.

    Hobgoblins notwithstanding....
