TED: Susan Blackmore: Memes and “temes”

Part of the TED Presentations Category.

This TED Talk¬†is the most interesting TED discussion I’ve watched.

“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.

Susan Blackmore studies memes — those self-replicating “life forms” that spread themselves via human consciousness. We’re now headed, she believes, toward a new form of meme, spread by the technology we’ve created.”
