Abstract: From the word mimeme of Greek origin, Dawkins coined the term meme in his 1976 book on The Selfish Gene [1]. He defined it as being the basic unit of cultural transmission or imitation. These days, the monosyllabic word meme that is an analog of the word gene has since taken flight to become one of the most successful metaphorical ideologies in computational intelligence. The new science of memetics today represents the mind-universe analog to genetics in cultural evolution, stretching across the fields of anthropology, biology, cognition, psychology, sociology and socio-biology.
