Apology accepted. The "notation" is posted at:

As this is just a model, I guess its usefulness is more in how valid it is
(if it holds together logically), its replicablility (if it can be
reproduced using another model...history, for example), how well it explains
what is known, how well it predicts the outcome of certain
manuplations...all this instead of how is it "referenced". I
"constructed"--though--it to explain what I understood...and it holds up for
the uses I put it to ("memetics"--it wasn't at first--psychology, sociology,
philosophy, history...).
