    Default Genes, Memes & Temes

    from TED

    http://www.ted.com Susan Blackmore studies memes: ideas that replicate themselves from brain to brain like a virus. She makes a bold new argument: Humanity has spawned a new kind of meme, the teme, which spreads itself via technology -- and invents ways to keep itself alive

    Gene:
    - A unit of heredity that is transferred from a parent to offspring and is held to determine some characteristic of the offspring
    - Proteins coded directly by genes
    - A distinct sequence of nucleotides forming part of a chromosome, the order of which determines the order of monomers in a polypeptide or nucleic acid molecule which a cell (or virus) may synthesize

    Meme:
    - An element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, esp. imitation
    - A humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users

    Teme:
    - An element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one system to another by nongenetic and nonmemetic means, esp. imitation
    - An image, video, piece of text, code, data, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by a non-biological intelligence or artificial intelligence.
