Here are some possible definitions for the lexicon


The influence that a prior event exerts on subsequent events.


The frame of reference within which events occur. May have significant
effect upon Meaning and True Meaning.


A self-replicating system that contains within itself the machinery and
the information to replicate itself although the progeny are not
necessarily identical due to mutation or mixing of genes.

The information for the book I mentioned is:
Title: The Millennial Project
Subtitle: Colonizing the Galaxy in Eight Easy Steps
Author: Marshall T. Savage
Publication Year: 1994

I have also come across the Oceania Web site which is related.

Are there any manuals of memetic engineering or practical guides to
constructing a meme complex? Could advertising strategies be considered a
form of such?

One suggestion for the Web page. You could put "Currently evolving"
rather than "Under Construction".

What will be the Stance of Virus on Good and Evil? (Easy question ;-))

What is the purpose of Virus stated explicitly?
