When the I becomes all-encompassing ?
When all is one maybe ?

It's like in "The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak".

Memes may be a higher form of control (than genes) in the meta-system
(check out Turchin on the PCP site), BUT for the time being, memes
need the phenotypes which depend on the genes to find an efficient
way to self-replicate (without the lower self-replicators).

I agree this is dangerous thinking, but that's the way I see it.
Personally I'd gladly exchange my mortal body for a better medium
so that I could expand my meme set eternally.

An immortal body ? How could that be ?

Does anyone have a reference on that article about finding
the biological clocks in the genes ? I'd like to stop mine.

That would keep my hair from falling.
