Little bit of a coincidence here. Going to chew on it for a bit, maybe riff.

My takeaway from the Kek thing is that 4chan finally bought into Chaos Magic.  Like, welcome to 2002, guys.

Cram for the win. The signature I'm sorry about your cat's penis makes it even better too

Memeplex is probably the right word for what we were going for anyway, although Discordia is a pretty unstable one.

Metamemomics?

Now this is a fun word. Lots of lip closing on it.

I'd say that it has the propensity for fast evolution, with a fair amount of Horizontal Meme TransferTM that leads to the creation of new strains. Then again, I have't really paid much attention to Discordia generally of late. It was interesting to see Disco emerge, but it's easy to get annoyed by it, so I was happy to eventually distance myself from that. Interestingly I can see some commonality with Disco and the alt-right, but I suspect a part of that is that they have a common ancestry/opportunity for HMTTM

I think you seriously need a Snickers or something.

How long ago was it that you were adding swastikas to Khara's kids faces here on PD, Weltburger?

And now you're "concerned" that "this board might get in trouble" if we keep being mean to Nazis.

The fuck outta here.

Funny enough, that was probably 10 years ago.

Jesus time flies

Principia Discussion / Re: is Discordianism alt right? I'm confused

IPunchNazis is a rather one dimensional person, isn't they?

"person" is a strong word here.

The Orderhood of Nephewry requires a certain amount of optimism from its members

Dammit. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/memome

I was hoping you were first.

Ah damn. Oh well, at least the word exists

Hmmm. Interesting question. Probably immune. Benign would probably if it still had some ability to spread, and becomes fixed in the culture.

Yes, I think this is accurate. In a sense, perhaps it could be said to have lost virulence as a consequence of host immunity, like an old virus that is still around but can no longer propagate by infecting new hosts; rather, it continues to occasionally cause outbreaks among earlier hosts who have become latent carriers.

This reminds me of the badgers meme. People who were on the internet around the year 2000 remember it occasionally and it still functions as a nostalgic joke, but no one else gets it.

Or Naughty Hedgehogs, or We Like The Moon.

It's like the kids' shows that only have relevance and meaning for children born in a certain ten-year span, or in a certain region. I remember Ramblin' Rod and Bumpity, and if I run into someone else who was a child in Portland in the 1970's they will remember Ramblin' Rod and Bumpity, but outside of that region or timeframe it has no relevance.

And then on the other end of that you get shit like Star Trek which runs for 3 seasons but becomes and remains a cornerstone of pop-culture for 50 years and ends up inspiring real life technology like automatic doors, cell phones and touchscreens.

Incidentally, I find it interesting that TEG/AKK would refer to it as "the Erisian meme." It's like saying "the Human gene." Which gene? There's 19,000 of them. It would be more appropriate to call it the Erisian memome (cause why not, we have Momes anyway)
