Memes (cultural genes with self - replication and mutation powers) and social sites. Evolution, revolution or regression?
By definition a meme can act as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena.
So can a well known truth become a lie while being transmitted from one mind to another via the social sites which everyone seems to use nowadays? Will the foundations of truth as we know it today be altered while a thought or an ideas gets transmitted from one mind to another. Is this evolution, revolution or regression?
