I agree with the idea that dogs would/do not contain the memes that we do
regarding the possible existence of a supreme being or such, but it may be
possible that dogs may generate "personal" memes regarding their
surroundings/environment. Someone once wrote that to assume that we are
alone in the universe would be an extremely egocentric/or ethno, it is one
of the -centrics, anyway, wouldn't also it be presumptous to assume that we
are alone in "our" memetic abilities. Later...
