What are qualities found in every successful meme?

To outlast and outwit its trillions of competitors, the successful meme must have three basic qualities:

  • Fidelity: The meme must produce accurate copies.
  • Fecundity: The meme must produce many copies.
  • Longevity: The meme must have staying power.

In addition, it must appeal to at least one basic human desire:

  • Sex.
  • Love.
  • Food.
  • Protection.
  • Status.
  • Power.
  • Variety.
  • Excitement.
