Tricky ground here Bill, and perhaps a diversion, but I would be cautious
of saying its our genes. For me memes convert brains to minds but then
seek to keep them converted. Emotional resistance can be a meme
'defending' its 'territory'. Logic and the ability to engage in reasoned
dialog, and choice, the ability to stand for principles [Self evident
truths] may be more important.
