Memetic Engineering What is a meme? (pronounced "meem")
Is an idea that replicates by symbiotically infecting human minds and altering their behavior, causing them to propagate the meme -- similar to the way a t-phage virus reproduces by hijacking the DNA of a bacterium. Unlike a virus, which is encoded in DNA molecules, a meme is nothing more than a pattern of information, one that happens to have evolved a form which induces people to repeat that pattern. The information pattern is held in an individual's memory, which is capable of being copied to another individual's memory. Individual slogans, ideas, catch-phrases, melodies, icons, inventions, and fashion are typical memes.
