This post is not directly connected to Smoke or cannabis, but being the person that I am, I feel the need to explain a couple of things, so you can understand my philosopy on life, the Universe and everything else. As a stoner, making and browsing for memes are one of my favotite activities when I'm high. Creating memes is an artform in itself, and that’s why so many people fail to get them. I want to start of on the right foot with memes on Smoke, before the flood of spam starts. This will give us an advantage against spam and will help BUIDL a cannabis-cenetred community that enjoys good weed and dank memes. By giving an example, more people will follow, and this is exactly why memes exist in the first place.
It's in our DNA
Since the beginning of human thought memes act as an essential part in our collective consciousness even if we don't realize it. They function like a database of ideas that have been passed throughout human history. According to Wikipedia:
A meme is an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture—often with the aim of conveying a particular phenomenon, theme, or meaning represented by the meme. A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices, that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.
