I'm interested in your use of 'non-memetic behavior.' Can you give an
example of this?

My first guess would have been 'genetic behavior' or 'instinct,' but you
give an example of sexual memes. If there was any area to describe as
'non-memetic, genetic, instinctual' behavior, it would be sex.

I wonder what is left for 'non-memetic behavior'? Things like 'kick'
