There are no stupid questions, although I've heard some pretty
silly/strange answers in my time ... and given some of them!
Check out and investigate the "Church of Virus";
don't be put off by the names: the lucifer intended was the
"lightbringer", and the "virus" is after a current book called "Virus of
the Mind" by Richard Brodie, one of the instigators / publicizers of the
"meme" theories of cultural transmission of ideas. I belong to the
"virus" mailing list, and they discuss all sorts of things, primarily
from a philosophical point of view.
Amazing how these things tend to converge, one of my mailing lists
referring to content in another!
