susan_blackmoreRecent research progress is expanding social appreciation with awareness of somatic body therapy for physiological and psychological development detailing irrefutable, break through knowledge for the "progressive" rate and method of survival
for all life forms including planet earth.

Technology and the internet is certainly mushrooming this renewed multi dimensional enlightening merge of scientific awareness coupled with biological evidence across every cellular memory of all living organicity of our universe.

Most certainly this knowledge supports the physical practices of body massage therapy and psychotherapy to take on new found respect with greater sensitivity and understanding to the science of touch through actual body therapy and with it the release of all forms of unconsciously retained toxic energy, the unresolved waste of all trauma.

Physiological and Personality Development

From our years of working "hands on" with massage and psycho therapy we do well know and understand the progressive influence
to physical conformity often due to some restricted protective or defensive mental attitude, and burdened foundation experiences
which also become apparent through developmental behaviour, body shaping stance, flexibility, movement and personality all contributing to structural conformity of body shape to survive in safety.

Our body and mind therapy is about releasing those unconscious withholding constrictions due to false alarms and inherited mental patterns to allow the human body to fully develop its natural potential to simply be itself.

What is a meme we hear you ask ?

A meme consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another and the internet is certainly fore most in this process and obvious era of conscious expansion and change from the past 25 years of neo conservative, economically driven politics as we see with this rising consciousness and growing awareness of society's reversal of behaviour as we selectively begin to driving the economy for the sake of human kind and earthly survival.

Returning to a new beginning of former ethical, naturally balanced, creditable, sustainable behaviour as many return to the essential reality and personal "after enlightenment" experience of the need to "chop wood and carry water" if we wish to sustain our life to avoid perishing and starvation.

Part of essential physiological need number one for basic shelter, according to Abraham Maslow's hierarchy.

Examples of memes include thoughts, new ideas, theories, practices, habits, songs, dances, moods and terms such as race, culture, and ethnicity.

Memes propagate themselves and can move through a "culture" in a manner similar to the behavior of a virus.
As a unit of cultural evolution, a meme in some ways resembles a gene. Richard Dawkins, in his book The Selfish Gene, [2] recounts how and why he coined the term meme to describe how one might extend Darwinian principles to explain the spread of ideas and cultural phenomena.
He gave as examples tunes, catch-phrases, beliefs, clothing-fashions, and the technology of building arches.

Meme-theorists contend that memes evolve by natural selection (similarly to Darwinian biological evolution) through the processes of variation, mutation, competition, and inheritance influencing an individual entity's reproductive success. So with memes, some ideas will propagate less successfully and become extinct, while others will survive, spread, and, for better or for worse, mutate.
"Memeticists argue that the memes most beneficial to their hosts will not necessarily survive; rather, those memes that replicate the most effectively spread best, which allows for the possibility that successful memes may prove detrimental to their hosts."

These and other great biological scientists and with a degree of practically applied common sense have all similarly pricked my curiosity about the genetic and selective evolutionary behaviour of progressive natural biology amidst the dual and deliberately complicating obstruction of the faith sellers story about the sins of the Father being cast down for many generations according to the papal bulls and whipped instructions towards gaining a passage to heaven.

susan_blackmoreSusan Blackmore studies memes:
Ideas that replicate themselves from brain to brain like a virus.

She makes a bold new argument:
"Humanity has spawned a new kind of meme, the teme, which spreads itself via technology -- and invents ways to keep itself alive."
