Contagious Tales/MemeticsLab

From ICWiki

Meme lab

A virtual think tank which is focused on developing successful memetic structures. Existing successful super memes (e.g. Christianity, Capitalism, 12 Step programs, the sexual revolution) will be studied for their capacity to self replicate, hold the focus of the person embracing them and transmit with fidelity. This group would work remotely, reviewing each others submissions and doing analysis of current memetic structures others have released. Annual face to face gatherings will coincide with the public releases of “findings” and suggestions for other memeticists and cultural researchers.

The meme lab will also look at why philosophies and progressive belief systems have not succeeded memetically and consider way to change them for more successful replication.
