Vortex to Virus, Myth to Meme

I’d like to draw attention to Julio Varela’s book “Vortex to Virus, Myth to Meme” and his request for feedback… I’d certainly like to hear more about how the meme is adopted here?

Varela writes “In the case of nihilism and chaos, the ongoing epistemological and ontological revolution initiated by the likes of Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, the collapse of myth as a totalizing source of meaning, and the transition from a Newtonian, deterministic worldview to a quantum-relativistic, chaotic worldview transformed the Western cultural landscape, paving the way for the “viral” spread of nihilism and chaos to different intellectual and cultural strata.” Just tossing this in to start a discussion hopefully with the members of the blog. I would be very interested in the feedback. I am trying to develop these ideas further and could use the constructive criticism.
