The word “meme” was invented in 1976 by Richard Dawkins, a British biologist. A meme is a fundamental instruction for the design of your mind, just like a gene is a fundamental instruction for the design of your body. Memes can be classified into various categories, such as assumptions, attitudes, beliefs, conclusions, definitions, excuses, expectations, interpretations, justifications, meanings, opinions, perspectives, preferences, prejudices, reasons, stories, values, visions, and so on. Simple memes equate to the names of things, for example, the meme “feeling” is the name of something that carries emotional energy. Once a mind is infected with a meme, the meme frames up the mind’s perceptions. Then something like music is sensed by the quality of feeling it delivers. Complex memes are constructed out of simple memes pasted together with Is-Glue, such as “feeling is dangerous” or “feeling is fun.” The idea of a “meme” is itself a meme. A functional set of memes is your thoughtware. The Box is made of thoughtware and thoughtmaps.
