Which leads me to a question that my liberal arts education (meme-complex?)
prompts me to ask: What about creativity? Is it really just an
unpredicatable synergy of memes, or is there some additional 'spark' involved?
While any creative person will tell you that their ideas were influenced by
everything they've read, they're not likely to tell you they were entirely
determined by them. It could be a delusional <I'm creative> meme at work,
and creativity could be just a symptom of a chaotic system, but people seem
to have this experience whenever they create, regardless of any exposure
they've had to a 'artistic' meme.
