At the Memetics Group, we use the term 'meta-meme' to refer to those memes
that address issues of memetics, learning, knowledge, authority. That is, a
meta-meme is a meme about memes and their nature.
Does this make sense? It is always easier to explain this with a diagram. It
consists of a circle, with the word 'memes' written in it, and then a much
smaller circle off to the side, with a arrow pointing to the big circle and
the word 'meta-meme' in it.
