Abstract:

Psychologist Susan Blackmore studies memes - self-replicating components of culture that travel through society via human consciousness, in a manner similar to viruses. In this TEDTalk, Blackmore makes a bold new argument: that technology has begun to drive not only the circulation of memes but the invention of them. She says that we have spawned a new kind of meme called the "teme," which spreads itself via digital communication and, all on its own, creates ways to keep itself alive.
