Summary/Abstract: The paper describes a process of meme evolutions in sequential time stages across different disciplines, approaches, and broadly speaking, paradigms. Idea creations between individuals are characterized as codified ideas that can be expanded or simplified according to implicit software used by individuals based on prior knowledge and experience. Neural networks of forms and layers involving input, output, recurrent, memory cells inside of a brain can be similarly conceptualized for communications across individuals for a better understanding of interdisciplinary collaborations. Codified ideas are assumed to be expressed in terms of symbols on the keyboards of computers, which require software to interpret as well as re-expressed to arrive at ideas that can be physically embodied. Different disciplines have different software. Ideas evolved from different software may or may not be physically embodied into something tangible. Tangible physical objects embodying ideas can be scaled or bundled to be branded and marketed. Evolution of memes in terms of codified ideas physically embodied precedes the forming of firms and markets. The emphasis on sequential time stages in the meme evolution in terms of codified ideas can fill a void towards a better understanding of how firms and markets operate. Several types of interdisciplinary collaborations can be identified based on this formulation.
