    Memetic Computing covers the general aspects of population-based problem-solving methods that are enhanced with some form of cultural-analog mechanism. For instance, Memetic Computing involves also software ecology. That is, studies of the enormous number of software projects are shedding light on how software development takes place and the many social and technical issues related to this fundamental XXI century activity. Related emerging trends that also fall squarely within the remit of Memetic Computing are search based software engineering including the very latest trends on software self-healing, self-assembly and self-management. Memetic Computing is thus an emergent discipline that seeks to distil principles derived both from nature and human societies (i.e. memes and self-organizing mechanisms) as to bring forth the creation of so called Living Technology. The main areas of scientific interest covered by Living Technology, and upon which Memetic Computing would have in near future a definite impact, is the interface between nano-bio-technology and information technology with the ultimate aim of creating new, novel production systems with the properties of self-organization, self-assembly, evolution, learning and, more generally, adaptive complexity. It is also essential to remark that Memetic Computing is also having an impact far beyond technical systems. For example, policy makers and businesses are using memetic strategies (previously called viral marketing) to influence public opinion and deliver effective change at a massive scale through the harnessing and leveraging of memetic concepts operating from small, perhaps unnoticeable, interactions. That is, Memetic computing is playing a key role in the design of bottom-up strategies for the achievement of large societal and technological changes. In this scenario, memetic simulations play a key role in the modeling of strategies and their potential outcomes. - The Emergent Technologies Task Force on Memetic Computing

    what role does chaos play in this process? the existence of free radicals generates new trajectories. how can we design for chaordic emergent synchronicity?

    In the Polytopia, everyone can customize their interaction with cyberspace and meatspace. There are no set dimensions nor set rules. As has been said before, the Polytopia is multi-dimensional by nature, and therefore will open up as yet unforseen possibilities to interact with our mental and physical environments, not to mention allow people to interact with each other using modalities not possible before.

    Those with mental (dis)orders, even those which cause significant personal damage such as some cases of schizophrenia, etc., cannot be too quickly ignored just because they do not share the same interaction with reality as we do.

    At this point and time we're not even aware of how many different levels of interaction and communication are going to open up with this new technology. And as these new ways to interact in our own languages open us up to the world around us and each other, there is the possibility of a whole new slew of mental (dis)orders that will also arise.

    In the future, the inability to communicate with the world as 'most people' do will not be considered in the respect that it is today. So now, we should learn and be open to to these people who interact differently with our environment than the 'norm' currently accepted, and aspire to do our best to learn their languages.

    "Ironically, the way that I move when responding to the world around me is described as "being in a world of my own" whereas if I interact with a much more limited set of responses and only react to a much more limited part of my surroundings people claim i am "opening up to true interaction with the world". They judge my existence, awareness, and personhood on which of a tiny and limited part of the world I appear to be reacting to. The way I naturally think and respond to things looks and feels so different from standard concepts or even visualization that some people do not consider it thought at all but it is a way of thinking in its own right." - silentmiaow
