Selfish GENES...so what is the ULTIMATE MEME?


First we need to define the word MEME and take a look at its source.

what is a MEME video from Ted Tv
[link to www.ted.com]

Something about this word and its origins suggests, we should not allow ourselves to forget what its origins are.

In Greek mythology, Mneme (pronounced /ˈniːmi/ NEE-mee, or as in Greek Μνήμη), was one of the three original Boeotian muses, though there were later nine. Her sisters were Aoide and Melete. She was the muse of memory.
 Quoting: wiki


mneme (n.) mne·me
1. Psychology the retentive basis or basic principle in a mind or organism accounting for memory, persisting effect of memory of past events.
A unit of memory and taken from the Greek mimneskesthai, to remember (and ultimately from Mnemosyne, the Greek goddess of memory.)
2. (capitolized) Class. Myth. the Muse of memory, one of the original three Muses. Cf."Aoede, Melete."

mnemic, a. mnemist
 Quoting: wiki


John Laurent in The Journal of Mimetics even suggested that the term meme itself may have come from the work of a little-known German biologist named Richard Semon. In 1904 Semon published Die Mneme (published in English as The Mneme in 1924). His book discussed the cultural transmission of experiences with insights parallel to those of Dawkins. Laurent found the use of the term mneme in The Soul of the White Ant (1927) by Maurice Maeterlinck and highlights its parallels to Dawkin's concept:

Now, the actual phrase that Maeterlinck uses—where he is discussing various theories which attempt to explain 'memory' in termites as well as the other 'social' insects (ants, bees etc.)—is "engrammata upon the individual mneme" (Maeterlinck, 1927, p.198), and according to my dictionary (Webster's Collegiate), an engram is "a memory trace; specif.: a protoplasmic change in neural tissue hypothesized to account for persistence of memory." For what it is worth, Maeterlinck explains that he obtained his phrase from the "German philosopher" Richard Semon.[1] ( [link to jom-emit.cfpm.org]

Laurent suggests that the etymological roots of the term meme may come from mimneskesthai, the Greek term for memory rather than the more commonly accepted root of mimeisthai, or to imitate.

History of the MEME concept

So all of that was presented because I want you to get used to these following associations.

MEME MNEME MEMory or MEMorEE
Richard Dawkins coined the term selfish gene and along with it resurrected the term meme.

Three Replicators termed the selfish gene followed by the MEMEs and then the third replicator, the TEMEs .

So at the end of the day it appears that the GENES which gave birth to the MEMES, is the mechanism through language that helps to form the TEMES, which is pronounced TEAMS.

rant

MEMEtic programming is what a MASTER would use to help direct the herd together or against each other.

What is the connection between GODWIN's Law, the swastika, and MEMEs?

******************
from wiki:

Godwin's law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies[1][2]) is an assertion made by Mike Godwin in 1990[2] that has become an Internet adage. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3] In other words, Godwin said that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.

Although in one of its early forms Godwin's law referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions,[4] the law is now often applied to any threaded online discussion, such as forums, chat rooms and blog comment threads, and has been invoked for the inappropriate use of Nazi analogies in articles or speeches.[5]

In 2012, "Godwin's Law" became an entry in the third edition of the Oxford English Dictionary.

I do LOVE the underlying message in all of the above.

GOD WIN LAW SWASTIKA MEME

Because look what I found/recovered from 5000 BCE, a MEME that spells it out >>> MNEME
