  1. But those aren’t tulpas… maybe this weekend I’ll have to rant about cultural appropriation and how that word has no real meaning like how they’re using it. *flails*

    • Since when has that mattered to 4chan? “Meme” didn’t always mean what people think it means today, and that’s a relatively recent word.

      The boundary between cultural appropriation and memetic evolution seems pretty porous. Especially when you look at anything even remotely tied to the occult.

      Cat has an interesting essay coming out here in the next few weeks looking at cultural theft and where that boundary might lie. It’ll be interesting to see what responses it gets.
