Richard Dawkins, ``The Selfish Gene''

"Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. Just as genes propagate themselves in the gene pool by leaping from body to body via sperms or eggs, so memes propagate themselves in the meme pool by leaping from brain to brain via a process which, in the broad sense, can be called imitation. If a scientist hears, or reads about, a good idea, he passed it on to his colleagues and students. He mentions it in his articles and his lectures. If the idea catches on, it can be said to propagate itself, spreading from brain to brain. As my colleague N.K. Humphrey neatly summed up an earlier draft of this chapter: `... memes should be regarded as living structures, not just metaphorically but technically.(3) When you plant a fertile meme in my mind you literally parasitize my brain, turning it into a vehicle for the meme's propagation in just the way that a virus may parasitize the genetic mechanism of a host cell. And this isn't just a way of talking -- the meme for, say, "belief in life after death" is actually realized physically, millions of times over, as a structure in the nervous systems of individual men the world over.'"

Jeg må si jeg finner bloggen din noe forvirrende:P

Bivdu-Baby said...

Samme hvilken formidlingsvei en bruker vil målet som regel være å sende det innkodede budskapet så nøyaktig så mulig til den som skal motta det. Men slik er det ikke alltid. Et eksempel finner vi hos kunstnere der målet kan være å sende budskap som tvetydig kommunikasjon der publikum aktivt må tolke budskapet selv. Også ledere kan bruke en slik tvetydig kommunikasjon for at medarbeiderne selv skal gjøre seg opp en mening.( Kaufmann & Kaufmann, 2003:288)

Jeg liker godt at meme-konseptet er blitt veldig memetisk selv, det sprer seg (som her paa bloggen) og har ogsaa foedt andre uttrykk.
