A quick question regarding your meaning of the term 'fitness.' Is this
term taken to mean the fitness of a meme per se to transmit it self or to
influence the host system in which it lodges? Or is the term taken to mean
the fitness of a host to accept or reject foreign memes? Or is it taken
to mean something else entirely?
