    Thanks again, Scott.

    I just now read your posts from yesterday. Judging from the quotes you
    provide, it does indeed look like another independent and prior invention of
    evolutionary cultural replicator theory, or at least a strong suggestion that
    the scientific community start developing such a theory. I will have to read
    the books to see how elaborated Huxley's work is.
