~Meme is my fault (I think...).
I needed a name for something that is structured like a meme in
that it consists of the kind of informational strutures that a
meme has when in your head, but that doesn't have to meet this
requirement of behaving like some sort of contagion. For
example, ideas that I have based on bits of other ideas are
~memes, but not memes, until I let them out of my head.
This is fundamental to the meme mind thing I push on a regular
basis. ~Meme is just something I try to throw into my horribly
bloated consciousness streams occasionally to flag that I don 't
quite mean what everyone else means by meme.
And I'd argue that its memes all the way down too; the interface
between prefrontal desires and premotor programs is easier if
both are informational patterns. But I won't go on about it :)
