Humankind would not have attained the global dominance it has today without the coevolution of culture. Culture, comprised of systems of ideas, provide coordinating frameworks for ordering phenomena which shape invisible (social) and visible (technological) structures, generally for the purpose of supporting a group’s survival. So what is the nature of the apparently intrinsic power of ideas? How do memes behave similarly and differently to lifeforms; what are the mutual dependencies, and the intersections? What happens when environments change, and a civilization’s memes no longer line up with the guarantee of its survival? How could we participate in accelerating memetic development and diversification for optimal individual, relational and collective outcomes?
