Within the concepts of memes and extremism, what is the name of the memes that bring balance.
My idea here, is to start looking for a new vocabulary to be used when we advance our understanding of memes. The goal is to get a vocabulary that itself is composed of successful memes! -Because only then will the knowledge that memes bring benefit.
The vocabulary has to have a positive, futuristic connotation, that can easily be word-dropped, altered, tweaked and copied across the digital surface, such that when used in an argument, the word in itself has impact even without having heard it before; it is hinting at itself.
I'll start by saying: "Meme" is good, it piggy-backs on "gene", and genes are cool!
I'll say that "teme", for "technologically fundameted memes" is NOT a very good word. Maybe it makes sense if you say it enough times, but it's not helping anyone outside of that circle of replicators, eh "repeators"? "T-meme" is better! Very close to T-rex, and the t-Veronica virus from Resident evil, aka Biohazard, the Playstation game. Even "techno-meme". Anything but a "theme"-association!
"Memenomena" is cool, but I don't know what it actually describes. Maybe a set of identified memes working in collaboration for the mind to reach a certain state?
"Meme-state" is also cool. "The public meme-state of North Korea is that of regime-totalitarian". Or "every homogeneous culture has a non-divergent meme-state". "Has it been proven that any designed and maintained meme-state is inferior to that of an emergent one?". "Most fundamentalists are in a non-penetrable meme-state".
"Meme-bridge": A meme that is engineered and put into the wild with the sole purpose and a clear-cut vector for leveraging the belief in one meme into another.
"The Meme-matrix". A more descriptive name for The Matrix trilogy.
"Meme-fest": A break-trough with a lot of good sources readily accessible. Makes you enthusiastic.
"Scrödingers meme": This is one to ponder.
"Memeformation", "Memeory", "Meta-meme", "Optimus Meme" (The new leader of the Autobots)
