This Human Meme podcast is the inflection point for what it means to live a life of knowing. We are in the critical moment of human induction. David Boles is a writer, publisher, teacher, lyricist and author living and working in New York City. He has dedicated his life to founding the irrevocable aesthetic. Be a Human Meme!
Canned Food and the Food Desert
No body chooses to go hungry. How do we feed a universal hungering that starts in the food desert and ends on the urban street corner? We are Constitutionally obligated "to promote the general welfare," and that includes getting food, and healthcare, to every body that needs the assistance.
Letter of Recommendation
There is an Art to writing a good letter of recommendation. A right letter takes time, and thought, and today, we look at both sides of the recommendation writing dyad: the writer and the person of interest. Plus, as a bonus, we dig into the Nebraska Mafia to reveal a hit job that nobody saw coming -- except the superior one firing the gun.
We kneel to show devotion and respect to others. We kneel for forgiveness, in joy, and to confirm deference; but there are those among us who kneel for other purposes of spite and betrayal. We must be vigilant to understand the motivation behind bended knee.
We Learn What We See
Vision isn't just about viewing, seeing is about knowing and recognizing. How do we determine friend from foe? We learn to observe, and then model behavior to help establish community. We belong by watching each other for cues on establishing morality, duty and courage.
Girl Talk and Gossip Gangs
Is gossip gender biased? It may be in the labeling, but not in the active living. Badmouthing and backstabbing are too common today and the end result is mistrust and moral dismay. How can we stop this sort of social brainwashing when it only takes one person, not two, to lift the gossip tide?
VOTE for Your Life!
Today, we fight for freedom. Today, we vote. Today, we stand up. The vote is the most valuable asset you have that doesn't cost you any money. Your vote is a gift that is everlasting. The trick to creating an effective single vote is simply... the amplification of intention!

Does Human Meme mean AI?
I only listened to the Rashoman/Kagemusha episode and the narration is so perfect and consistent that my brain is convinced that the voice actor is actually AI software. The actual text of the episode was a little unusual in places and Rashoman is only briefly discussed, Kagemusha not at all, and it would not surprise me if the text was also the product of artifical intellegence software. Listen for yourself and see if I'm just a crazy person.
How to be a Human Being
David Boles is pretty swell when it comes to discussing what makes us work as people. Memes are for sharing information, and he certainly helps us through understanding why we need to keep teaching and talking to each other as humans. "Be a Human Meme!" is his outcry, and I join him in that shout from the mountaintop!
