Episode 197: What is a Meme ~ Audio Article

What hidden programs are running your life? Most people have far more subliminal programs or memes running their lives via their subconscious mind than they’re ever aware of.

The more self-aware you become, the more you discover the programs functioning in the background of your mental operating system. Another term for that is meme.

Memes are largely the manner in which societal information is conveyed in today’s world. But what is a meme?

  1. Memes = Idea or thoughts
  2. Internet Memes = concepts and ideas that “go viral” and spread through the online world
    • Quote Memes = ideas and concepts captured as quotes that get spread virally

The original word ‘meme’ is a shortening of the ancient Greek word, mimeme, pronounced mīmēma, meaning an “imitated thing”, or “to imitate”.  The word meme was coined by English biologist and author, Richard Dawkins in his book, The Selfish Gene. Meme’ is a neologism, which means it’s a new (neo) word (logism) making its way into accepted and known vernacular.
