I am pleased to announce that the web related festival information is now fully integrated. You can get there (UMAF) from here, and here from there, with relative ease. If you are not finding that to be the case, let us know! You can leave a comment or always email me. During this process, we decided to name the blog so there was something to put on the button link from the main site. With some heavy help from my witty friends, the concept of the Meme-Brain sprung up.
A meme ( /ˈmiːm/) is an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture. While genes transmit biological information, memes are said to transmit ideas and belief information.
A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures.
Kind of fun, no? So that’s what this is, a fully permeable (membrane) passing of systems of information(meme) and manifestation into something great that we’d (brainchild!) like you ALL to be a part of (member!). Phew! This is what happens when you have clever friends! Most of that ain’t mine 😉
