Dear Wade,


But, so far, I still see them as 'living' their entire 'lives' within this brain, and not being peripatetic to the point of wandering outside
that, admittedly, strange little boundary.


Hmmm. The wandering meme. (?)
Ah! The wayfaring meme. (!)


(For it may indeed be that memetics is a discussion about the boundaries of the mind more than anything else.)

Well, certainly, when I consider stable interacting systems of memes, the system is not encompassed by the brain of any person involved. Yet the system may be considered as mental.
