My Favorite Memes

04 May 2001

Recursion, self-reference, and reiteration
Bootstrapping consciousness without Creation
Nothing in this world is quite what it seems
These are a few of my favorite memes


Ideas infect us and we infect others
What we don’t get from TV we catch from our mothers
Complexifying to elaborate schemes
These are a few of my favorite memes


You can find happiness, fame, sex, and power
Action with Purpose makes you Man of the Hour
Self-affirmation, fulfilling your dreams
These are a few of my favorite memes


When the angst bites
When the doubts squeeze
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite memes
And then I don’t feel…so bad!
