The hypothesis:
It is possible to construct incorruptible memes.

The memes:
  • P@X
    "I need peace."
  • PÛL
    "You can share."
  • PR0
    "We will progress."

The test:
Two teams work in opposition to promote or to diminish the memes listed above. After one year, google hits and random surveys will assess the relative success of each teams' efforts. Results will be used to evaluate the hypothesis.
