Definition Edit

A meme (pronounced meem) is a postulated unit of cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena.

Overview Edit

The word is a blend of "gene" and the Greek word μιμητισμός (/mɪmetɪsmos/) for "something imitated." Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes, in that they self-replicate and respond to selective pressures.
