In becoming stronger, individualism had to relocate itself. It had to , to spell
it out, make itself, a better selective choise. If we all forget the erotic or even
the sexual connotations for a second, memes get born out of existing ones
after a multitude of meme- hosts have put their heads together.
Culture, as then the evolving entity resulting out of such a process, is thus a
collective enterprise of a group of agents acting in unity.
Chaos becomes order.
But that ain 't the truth !
One point of view on chaos, is that chaos is general, that it has no end, it
isn 't finite !
It is in our persistent dispostion of Dasein that we involve ourselves to create
chaos, the inevitable characters of this are new ideas/ new strategies/ solu-
tions to problems, theories and what not in an infinite duration.
In doing so, we went beyond the notions of collectiviness, we had to, the
reserves of chaos has to be inexhaustible !
And now, that we 're dealing here with some kind of fertility, we 're speeding
it up !
How can we be surprised, under that condition, that memes with a sentiment
of selfishness in effect stand in objection to any collective !?
The meme is born as individualistic_ it is alas, the price they must pay to keep
themselves potent. But this, I repeat, is not a sublimated version of the Dar-
winian natural selection. Individualism, and thus Menomics need to evolve/
( deliver) memes/ memetic pathways which were to be enough understood
to make concrete proposals about how to deal with the problems in a nearby
future/ to even to make a difference.
