How Resonance Works for Development and Propagation of Memes


Meme is a type of behavior that is passed from one member of a group to another, not through the genes but by other means. This paper claims that the concept of resonance should play an important role in the propagation of memes among group members and the development of meme in individual members. Dinet et al. pointed out that the concept of resonance originally issued from physics that has been successfully applied to cognitive processes for behavior selection; the Model Human Processor with Real-Time Constraints (MHP/RT) model proposed by Kitajima and Toyota is a unique model that incorporates a resonance mechanism to connect perceptual-cognitive-motor (PCM) processes that work synchronously, and memory processes that work asynchronously with the environment. This paper elaborates the resonance mechanism implemented in MHP/RT and its associated multi-dimensional memory frames from three perspectives: how resonance works in a single-action selection process that happens in a hierarchically organized structure of behavior; what types of memes can exist in multi-dimensional memory frames; how PCM processes and memory develop from birth to the end of adolescence in terms of the detailed workings of resonance. This paper concludes with the implications of the mechanistic understanding of the role of resonance, the effect of resonance malfunction and the effect of the existence of memory that does not resonate with the real environment.
