The next talk hosted by the Van Plettenberg Historical Society will take place at Formosa Garden Village on Thursday 12th March.
The speaker will be Len Swimmer and his topic “Memes and Memetics – Nature versus Nurture”
promises to be extremely interesting.
We are all born with a life script, originating in our DNA and refined by family value systems and the environment in which we live.
Major disruptions and perturbations may bring about meme change – but this is not pre-determined by creed, colour or race.
Early in South African history for instance – before external influences were felt, we can trace the most basic Memes in the life script of the Bushmen – known today as the Khoisan people.
This is where we begin.
Len Swimmer moved to Plettenberg Bay 15 months ago.
Since his arrival he has thrown himself into Plett civic matters and has been elected to the ExCo of the Plett Ratepayers’ Association, The Van Plettenberg Historical Society, the Plett Community Environmental Forum, and Plett Probus.
As a civil activist, he is passionate about the Environment, Democracy, Freedom of Speech and other fundamental freedoms. He fights vociferously against unjust causes.
He is also a keen wildlife photographer & artist.
Len has a BA(Law) degree from University of Natal & has delivered lectures at Universities, Colleges and Public platforms on Law, Management, Communication, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Motivation and Self Actualisation.
His latest subject is Memes & Memetics
