>Subject: CFP: Symposium on Memetics (Namur, August 1998)

I found a significant paragraf:

>The initial description of 'meme' by Dawkins is rather vague, which is a
>possible reason for current diverging views on what a meme really is, and
>how the memetic model can be used. We are confronted with an avalanche of
>books, essays, and publications scattered over different journals and

Maybe a suitable framework could be found in a modest article of mine:

"Information or knowledge warfare" published on the site:

It is not on an academic level that could be expected when dealing with
such a "serious" matter, but the intention was indeed to make it
comprehensive to common, decission making, people. Furthermore, my
"excellent" English was of great help in making it as simple as it was at
the end.

I would appreciate any comment on the ideas there mentioned, especially
those negative, because the negative feedback commonly makes the system
more stable, while the positive one usually brings it in a more labile
state, and I'm not enthusiastic of being unstable.

Thank you for your consideration.
