A conjecture does not require an experiment- most of philosophy resides

The 'thought' experiments of the physicists are carefully constructed

Once the conjectures of the meme seen here and abouts are distilled to
theories with experiments attached- then memetics will start on the road
to scientific validity. I will not be content until these conditions are
met. (Regardless that no-one cares....) Conjecture is fine for the
