Consider how similar the replication of a strand of DNA is to the
replication of a meme or idea.  Let us examine the replication of
http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/ Mentifex AI a theory of brain-mind.

The initial cell of a human being replicates itself completely to
several powers of two before any differentiation occurs among the
daughter cells.  Likewise, the Mentifex AI Meme infects thousands
of febrile minds as a monolithic, often unwelcome germ of an idea.

In the human zygote not all proteins can be expressed immediately
and likewise the Mentifex Mind-Model can not be understood (meme-
replication) as an all-at-once whole.  Instead, Nature in the one
case and a good school of Computer Science in the other case will
choose a starting-point so that "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny"
and so that students of the mind will see how Mentificium evolved.

Nature shows that most genes are useless detritus, as is Mentifex.
A few chosen genes build "deinon ti ho anthropos" and a few ideas
http://www.newciv.org/Mentifex/ will create a Machina Intelligens.
