Memes are replicators of consciousness?

Susan’s Blackmore’s fascinating talk about memes and temes (techno memes). She explains how memes work and survive (self replicating information) and after watching it i thought that this principle is similar to the way consciousness expands… i wrote about it a while ago in Big Bang Theory of Consciousness
So it seems like memes are replicators of consciousness. I will go along with that. 😉

http://www.ted.com Susan Blackmore studies memes: ideas that replicate themselves from brain to brain like a virus. She makes a bold new argument: Humanity has spawned a new kind of meme, the teme, which spreads itself via technology — and invents ways to keep itself alive

Big Bang Theory of Consciousness

here’s my big bang theory of consciousness on a cosmic scale:

Levels of consciousness:
1. mineral
2. plant
3. animal
4. human
5. beyond human

It works roughly like this: from very basic – it expands and becomes more complex – unill it implodes (becomes literally all one) … and explodes…

On a phisical level, simple nodes of consciousness tend to multiply thus creating more complexity and expand in a curved shape around the centre of origin (gravity of energy prevents it from fdrifting away)… thus creating a more densed layer… so it keeps multiplying and filling the space around itself untill eventually the outer layer becomes so dense that it locks the system into a solid shell (like an egg shell). When this happens the proccess of radical transformation takes place inside the “egg”…. the birth of something completely new. (I believe we have reached that stage of evolution already!)

Further, as the creative proccess of mutational multiplication is never ending (and ever accelerating), the space inside the egg becomes more and more densed (implosion proccess)… untill it becomes one solid matter – all one! Now it becomes so heavy and densed that eventually the pressure becomes too big and the egg cracks. But the pressure of course is so big that it doen’t just crack – it explodes! (just like the big bang)… sending all its bits and peaces (of consciousness) all around the cosmos…. untill these flying bits get lumped with other bits of consciousness (from different galaxies)… thus beginning to form a new system… and the proccess (forming a new egg) repeats itself!

Furtermore, the new egg will start from basic level 1 again, but it will be of course beyond human level node… thus creating even more complex systems of consciousness (far and far beyond our imagination now!). And this is how I visually imagine a magnificent proccess of never ending evolution: from explosion to implosion.

here’s a drawing that illustrustrates formation of new conscious nodes after explosion:
