>The thought of right is originally my thought; or, it has its origin in me. But, when it has sprung from me, when the "Word" is out, then it has "become flesh," it is a fixed idea. Now I no longer get rid of the thought; however I turn, it stands before me. Thus men have not become masters again of the thought "right," which they themselves created; their creature is running away with them. This is absolute right, that which is absolved or unfastened from me. We, revering it as absolute, cannot devour it again, and it takes from us the creative power: the creature is more than the creator, it is "in and for itself."

>memes propagate themselves in the meme pool by leaping from brain to brain [...] memes should be regarded as living structures [...] When you plant a fertile meme in my mind you literally parasitize my brain [...] memes have ensured their own survival by virtue of those same qualities of pseudo-ruthlessness that successful genes display. The idea of hell fire is, quite simply, self perpetuating [...] We have the power to defy the selfish memes of our indoctrination

Stirner's "fixed idea" and Dawkins's "meme" are basically the same thing, aren't they? Has anyone commented on Stirner's work from an evolutionary perspective, i.e. fixed ideas/spooks as replicators? And if they are replicators, then couldn't you say that their success is enough to justify them?

the meme is not just a thought, it is the "proto-information" it could be so insignificant that you can't even describe it

but yes they are close enough
