Aiki as a meme

No, this isn't about the latest cat gif meme, but more along the lines of Richard Dawkins theory of Memetics.

I would have titled this, "Aikido as a meme," but I suspect there's more going on here than is apparent.

The meme of Aiki. Have you noticed it working in your life and training and in the overall community? Noticing changes in the dynamics and changing of the guard?

Of course, we're switching the program to something completely different.

Aiki is changing and evolving.

Any ideas on what's going on?

Re: Aiki as a meme

Yes agreed.
Aiki as a thought-virus that perpetuates itself.
It is rather contiguous and addicting.
Until again,

Jeez. I thought you meant aikido as a meme. My grand darlings call me Meme.
