Jason Silva gets his memes on

Jason Silva gets his memes on in his latest video.

It's pretty cool. My thought while watching was: is our evolutionary success really measured by how far we replicate our memes? That's the evolutionary success of something - but maybe not what we normally think of as "us".

My recommendation for a future video is to look into the relationship between Cairns-Smith's genetic takeover and the possibility of a memetic takeover.

For media coverage see here.
