The oral tradition demands something more than the obscure surrender of thought to the silent articulation, the "mute immobility" of the written word.[^N] Without an audience, the Performance is moot and the point is null, at least that is the hypothesis!. This stagnant silence is deafening, ironically so! And yet the autodidactic continues in a systematic way, acting if you will, towards a sequential and orderly arrangement of memes, a single unit of culture, transmitted beyond belief. Homogenous replicators dictate the dogma of the day and culture is paradigmatic. Nothing moves, twists or contorts, yet the meaning is manifest, spanning the epiphenomenal. How wonderous human consciousness is.
