at least some basic mechanisms and some basic definitions and have these
available as a FAQ somewhere. A list of accepted 'paradigms' by this
community. Anyone is free to challenge these 'paradigms', but should at
least have read the list before doing so. As such, discussions can be
constructive and not redundant.

A summary of the discussions on replicators, auto-replicators, what is
being replicated, would be most welcome at this time.<

I support the request, if someone has the time, but if we are learning fr=
the discussions why not. A bit of requisite diversity and memetic
redundancy may after all be an essential prerequisite of the origin of ne=
memetic species [whatever they are]
