    Hello all!

            I am still somewhat of a neophyte to the world of memes so
    pardon my naivete and ignorance. I've reached a critical juncture in a
    document I am writing and I realized that I've been claiming that memes
    "experience" selection pressures without really backing this assertion
    up. Do memes experience selection pressures? What are these pressures,
    from an ontological point of view? Your input in answering this question
    is greatly appreciated.
