(Foire aux idees ) Retour sur la conscience

Eh bien, voici quelques idées, à peine germées, qui trottent en ce moment dans ma tête. Pour commencer, un petit retour en arrière. (Ideas) Consciousness. At a certain stage of our evolution (Homo Habilis?)

It’s not only vacuous marketing hype, it can’t possibly be right. Memetics. This article is related to the study of self-replicating units of culture, not to be confused with Mimesis.


Memetics is a theory of mental content based on an analogy with Darwinian evolution, originating from the popularization of Richard Dawkins' 1976 book The Selfish Gene.[1] Proponents describe memetics as an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer. The meme, analogous to a gene, was conceived as a "unit of culture" (an idea, belief, pattern of behaviour, etc.) which is "hosted" in the minds of one or more individuals, and which can reproduce itself, thereby jumping from mind to mind. Thus what would otherwise be regarded as one individual influencing another to adopt a belief is seen as an idea-replicator reproducing itself in a new host.
