Subject: Question

Please point me in the right direction. It seems self-evident that not all
memes have the same affect on the human species' ability to evolve. Those
memes we learn at the knee become far more persistent than skirt length in
the fall collection. How we cook, toilet-training habits, notions of self
and our role in society could be controlled by memes that can almost be
traced to very specific sub-groups within a society and are far more likely
to be held over a lifetime and passed to offspring. Is there anything in
the corpus that either supports or refutes this opinion?
