Oh come now guys - keep it up or many promising analses of the relative fitness of the Gatherer meme and the Lynch meme will be
scuppered. Anyone into memetics as discourse could have a field day calibrating equations olong the lines of

W (g) = 1 - S(l) or vice versa

Anyone inmto memetics as the source of individual barriers to learning and enquiry (see Chapters 5 and 6 of Shifting the
Patterns) could likewise have a field day.

Go to it. You will do applied memetics a service.
