High Tech Heroes with Sherwin Gooch, episode 10, part 2, directed by Hud Nordin: Cybenetician Heinz von Foerster discusses the founding of Cybernetics, and the possibility of achieving immortality through the downloading of a human menome into a machine.

In this context, a "menome" is to memes what a genome is to genes. A menome constitutes the sum total of all neural information of an individual organism, just as a genome comprises the sum total of all genetic information defining an organism.

"Is LIFE only to do with reproduction?" - Heinz von Foerster
