Yes but even there Darwinian natural selection is at work. Some ideas are
good at infecting other minds and getting reproduce and thus can survive
for thousands of generations, while other ideas are not good at that and
vanish after a single generation. Of course minds work a lot faster than
embryology so cultural evolution is vastly faster than biological evolution.
