massless memes go viral

A meme (rhyming with "cream") is a unit of ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes, in that they self-replicate and respond to selective pressures.

A meme, an idea, has no atoms, no energy of any kind we can measure, yet everybody can be moved by one. We can laugh from em’, we can get scared by em’ to unfortunately. Sometimes when we’re scared of stuff we can’t figure out or control, we use memes to comfort us. Like gravity, a force we don't understand but who’s power is unquestioned, memes are so fundamental we forget them consciously while balancing them silently.

The power that certain ideas, memes, can manifest can be seen in the behavior of religious zealots. Regardless of which meme they caught, they caught one. Religion is a contagious psychosis and the agent of contagion is viral-like memes. Our viewpoints and belief system can be accessed and altered through the receptors called emotions. Memes could attach to our fear emotions, for example, and by providing comfort to a fear the meme gains access to the emotional grid through which we view events. Just like they might of caught a cold from a rhino virus, they caught religion from a meme.

It’s high time we started treating these poor individuals with compassion not as fools, and recognize them as the meme-tally health challenged. There’s are lottsa other meme-tal diseases too. Capitalism, another deadly meme, the only other thing that preaches/believes/lives in an unlimited growth lifestyle while immersed in a limited resource enviornment is cancer.

Beware, Danger Ahead!. Massless memes in every direction are looking to trade any easy answer for a paradigm filtered future.
