Well done. Thanks. This is for serious students.

I suggest that as we read along we post questions and interesting insights on this discussion site so we all can present our views.

But Beware. Memetics is also a meta-meme. We might wind up meta-membots.
"Meta-membots" Ha! Good one Rick!
Thanks for this. I really hope to find the time to look into this soon.
