So memes which are information packets written onto the "outer
layer of the brain" are the genes that via an embryological recursion
(which includes sensory-motor) give rise to the "behavioural phenotype"
of the organism. Where behavioural phenotype *is* behaviour.

As for the rest of your post, My memcology resonated to the
extent that I was just about able to understand it then realised the
roots on which my understanding had been based, had been forgotten and
my understanding collapsed completely. This cycle went on a few times
and I never quite grasped it, but it was fun trying.

entropy and complexity and their interaction, is nothing.
