Spy drone meets human. This sinister video was prepared for the Cologne Futures Conference 2014 with Professor Sue Blackmore of Plymouth, England, the world's leading thinker on "memes" - gene-like behaviours or cultural ideas which self-replicate, selfishly, within human or machine hosts.

After genes and memes come the Third Replicator - "Tremes" (or "Temes").

Professor Blackmore's research suggests that Tremes may already be evolving using our computers, servers, phones and interconnected gadgets in order to propagate themselves - while we feed them with hardware, software and energy.

The start of the era of pervasive drones flying around and above us now offers eyes for the Tremes. Watch what could happen if you meet the Eye of the Treme.
