Instantiating Meme Theory: Ontologies
I've been thinking a lot about Ontologies, Schemas, and Meme theory.

Here is my Meme class

Meme extends Object{

//Memes contain one reference to any other object, that contains meme specific code

//its ok for a meme to have no specific code, and for the meme merely to serve as a linked list to other memes
public static Object memeObject = null;

//Each meme that influences this meme may be assigned an influence from 0-100, such that the sum of all influencing memes
public static final int TOTAL_INFLUENCE = 100;

//it is fine for most any value to be null
public ArrayList influencingMemeObjects = null;

//the sum of all values on this list can never exceed 100, that is the only restraint I can think of
public ArrayList influenceValueForInfluencingMemeObjects = null;
}

role playing of sorts
So I recently started Roleplaying with people that might not be, or are unfamiliar with Role Playing NationStates got me started on it, but the whitwolf forums had long prepped me.

I've taken to making myspace profiles for various characters or settings I might run a game for, or run a character in. I then bug other people on myspace that have done similarly.

Anyway, here as IC post, on an OOC forum, about the NSUN:

In Bloody Character View on the NSUN
OOC: I tried to ask this question on the NSUN forum, but they didn't seem capable of responding in character. What is your representatives various IN CHARACTER VIEWS on the NSUN?

IC: Disco U #98W#$% steps out of the cloning vat, checks his assignment report, and realizes he is being sent to the UN. He sees it as a suicide mission, but this clone was built not to question orders during it's first week of assignment. The Free Land of Discoraversalism withdrew from the UN recently, dissatisfied by how poorly the NSUN represented the views of the global body politic. Only a small portion of the worlds countries are represented by the UN, and the NSUN has little influence outside the UN.

We inform the United Nations that The Free Land of Discoraversalism will no longer participate in its corrupt, hollow debates. Our nation is has left behind the local politics that is the NSUN and has renewed it's focus on global politics.

Ever since I heard about people exploiting google's search algorithm I've been thinking about what the algorithm must be. I've been using google alerts a lot to track the web presence of search terms I've created, or that few know of. Here are the results for Discordian Universalism.

You can never divorce the ends from the means.

Money is almost always one of the means.

It is important to always try to distinguish means from ends.

Ends are always compromised by existing means.

There are three main sources which tells us about the god Heimðallr, namely Gylfaginning (The Deluding of Gylfi) taken from the Younger or Prose Edda, Skáldskaparmál (The Poesy of the Skalds) and the Poetic Edda. Heimðallr’s possible relegation to sentinel status may have possibly been due to a result of betrayal of trust or accrued cognitive power in compensation for the loss of some bodily faculty?

27. I know of the horn of Heimðallr, hidden
Under the high-reaching holy tree;
On it there pours from Valfather's pledge
A mighty stream: would you know yet more?

46. Fast move the sons of Mim, and fate
Is heard in the note of the Gjallarhorn;
Loud blows Heimdall, the horn is aloft,
In fear quake all who on Hel-roads are.

47. Yggdrasil shakes, and shiver on high
The ancient limbs, and the giant is loose;
To the head of Mim does Othin give heed,
But the kinsman of Surt shall slay him soon.

Gruenberg's nation
http://www.nationstates.net/Gruenberg

Gruenberg has been an implaccable foe. To all appearances we have very different politics. We'd both appear to be free market capitalists. I'd assume he is willing to interfere in the free market with intellectual property laws. We're willing to interfere in the free market to break up conglomerates of multinational corporations.

Satyagraha
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satyagraha
"
Satyagraha (Hindi: सत्याग्रह, satyāgraha) is the philosophy of nonviolent resistance most famously employed by Mohandas Gandhi in forcing an end to the British Raj and also against apartheid in South Africa.

Satya is Sanskrit for Truth, and Agraha is used to describe an effort, endeavor. The term itself may be construed to mean any effort to discover, discern, obtain or apply Truth. The word is rooted in Sanskrit, Hindi and Gujarati.

The real digital bishop rocks:Jacques Gaillot
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques_Gaillot

"As well as this Bishop Gaillot also took a leniant stance in regards to abortion claiming he was not qualified to judge a woman who found herself in such a scenario. Towards the end of his service as Bishop of Évreux he sparked further controversy by blessing a gay couple in a "service of welcoming", after they requested so due to their imminent death as a consequence of AIDS. He is considered to be a foremost theologian fighting for Theological reform in numerous fields of church thinking, including; abortion, homosexuality and contraception.

Gaillot has been so active in his beliefs that he has had to be stopped by the Vatican on numerous occasions, including one time when he was given a direct order by Pope John Paul II to avoid a conference in Italy about homosexuality. [1]

On World Youth Day in 2004, Cardinal Joachim Meisner of Cologne barred Gaillot from talking at a session on the topic of "Being Christian in the Third Millennium: A Faith Which Has Hope." at the event in Bonn, through the use of Canon law 763, which allows a bishop to prevent another bishop from speaking in his diocese for a serious reason. [2]

In 1995, Jacques Gaillot was named titular bishop in partibus of Partenia. The See of Partenia, now located in the desert of Algeria, has not existed in reality since the 5th century when it was in Mauritania. This function is a kind of sinecure with no pastoral responsibilities. Gaillot still continues to reach out however, this time on the internet, as a "virtual bishop". This removal sparked an emotional response from thousands of people across France and the rest of the world. Thousands of people attended Bishop Gaillot's last mass at the Cathedral in Évreux and stayed on the streets protesting the Vatican's decision, including Gaillot's own mother. The choice to remove Bishop Gaillot as ordinary of Évreux was widely seen as mistake by both lay people and clergy, and also many non religious people who had heard of Gaillot. After his removal hundreds of different people wrote letters to the Vatican and emminent prelates. Many considered the action taken against Gaillot to be too harsh, he was perceived favourably by a significant number of people, particularly due to his ministry to all people without distinction, and became a national figure after the sanctions taken against him."

Free will is an illusion. I consider the universe an experiment in information theory. A chaotic dynamic system was setup. It resulted in a system of great complexity. Parts of it self organized, and started computing.

Fate->Supernatural->Subconscious->Meme Theory
http://forums.jolt.co.uk/showpost.php?p=11460476&postcount=171

Fate is a word for a likely future, that is hard to avoid. I believe all supernatural truths may be true, but aren't supernatural.

It's a bad idea to open an umbrella inside, to mock a priest in his church, to mess with things you don't understand, etc. The subconscious is powerful, and the rules it plays by seem supernatural. The collective unconscious is exteremly powerful, but it's power can be understood by the proper application of meme theory.
