A person hears the idea about Theseus's ship, that is, the Athenians so revere a historical ship that it is repaired whenever a piece rots. Eventually there are no original pieces, yet it is still considered Theseus's ship. He realizes this idea has been passed from brain to brain since the time of ancient Greece, and yet the idea is the same. The breath used to express the idea and the brain that developed it are long gone. He sets out to create and track an idea, and fund a group to track the idea for as long as it lasts.
