Oh yeh, it all has its place man, I still explain a lot of psychological
phenomena without talking about memes, and, shit, I'm getting a buzz from
talking about the boundaries of memes and other cognitive phenomena (limbic
influence on thought, reflex, learnt reflex etc... hey, who wants to be a
taxonomist of cognitive phenomena? Memes, Reflexes, Conditioned Motor
Responses, Perceptions, woah...)

I'm just enjoying thinking about cultural transmission of ideas ATM, so
memetics helps me explain more of the stuff that I want to explain right now
than other books.
