Hi Ray, and John and others who replied,
I will try to eleborate,
If memes were to be multiplicated ( replicated in numbers) do other memes
die !? Allegedly, not ! They stay all the time somewhere, they can be/ will
be forgotten, there will be no longer a behavior/ trait/ habit attached to
them_ they won 't die in the sense we all think about. They will not evolve
Which info allegedly ' dies ', old information has to go ( memory !?).
Which memes die and does this influence the mutation- rate of any other
meme/ memeplex !?
If memes has to die to let any space for others does this affect the
tion- flow of any other meme/ memeplex !?
And if memes commit suicide, or their death is controlled by others/ their
neighbours, to let others or themselves propagate, does this influence any
mutation- rate/ information- flow of any other meme/ memeplex !?
Is there a mechanism whci supposingly drives memes to ( commit) suicide_
why such a mechanism if it should exist !?
