    It's all me me me me me.

    I know I'm probably about 25 years behind the better read denizens of this forum but interesting reading nonetheless:

    Hey!

    Okay, I missed 2000. I spent that year dead, for tax reasons.

    My car has one of them.

    Unless you mean "autocatalytic" as in "in danger of disappearing up it's own asshole", in which case I see what you meme. I mean mean, odviously.

    Now look, my vocabulary is broken.

    "Pass it on." is the copy instruction that makes "memes are the new euphoniums" a meme.

    Whether or not the idea that you should copy an idea is a meme in itself I don't know. It's probably a catalytic converter. Or something.

    It's a Metameme.

    Meta being a favourite word of philosophers. Legend has it Locke had a 'Meta Diary' - a piece of paper that told him where his diary was.

    Meta transports one to the reflective layer, if used in an abstract structuralistic discourse it can formulate the relationship of the reference layer and the reflective layer, if the discourse is sufficiently abstract and the structures sufficiently robust the reflective layer can become a reference layer, the Meta disappears. That movement can then be repeated and the discourse can claim the whole field of infinite layers of reflection, as a new dimension in the field of the structuralistic language which is used in the discourse. In the classic sense the scope of the discourse becomes infinte.
