Particle Memetics[edit]

Has anyone heard of 'particle memetics'? Eschewing the gene analogy this theory takes an approach based on particle physics. It's an interesting idea which also pulls in ideas from other areas of physics such as quantum theory. Only I've not found much information on the web about it.

Amongst many issues, NPOV and OR[edit]

Article abounds with NPOV and OR issues. Poorly sourced. There appear to be plenty of sources out there on the subject, so this page could be much more encyclopedic with a little careful attention. νημινυλι (talk) 02:53, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Criticism and Previous Developments[edit]

I recall, distinctly, running across a book in the UW Milwaukee library called Memiosis, which was a French, perhaps continental philosophical, discussion on the transformations of meaning between literature and reality, or some such topic bordering on the topic of semiotics. I'm having a hard time finding a reference to the book online at the moment, since the Net is littered with meme dominated results. But, here's my point: there was, apparently, an area of literary studies or philosophy previously labeled with this root word, PRIOR to Dawkin's meme-virus.

I would also expect this Wikipedia article addressing Dawkin's use of meme to also include some talk or reference to the area of criticism between semiotics and memetics, such as one might find in the following article:

Thanks for looking into these two points. I don't have the time to be an encyclopedist at this moment, but felt it important to tag the article for others who may be concerned with accuracy! Enshook (talk) 01:41, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Memetics as code script and Original works[edit]

Is there any research that correlates the idea of 'code scripting' to that of Memetics?

'Code Scripting' is the idea that the basic formation of any developed 'language' is due to the physical mechanism of the communication media.

e.g. 'I can not communicate in a vacuum because I speak in air' and this disallows EM frequency communication.

Memetics may incorporate multiple media formats...

The section entitled 'New Developments' looks like an original source and may use biased reasoning. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AnotherName356 (talkcontribs) 04:37, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
