INVARIANCE: One of the set of Objective Criteria denoting selection by phenomena or objects independent of the hosts and memes involved in the process. (Distinctiveness, Invariance and Controllability)

According to the invariance criterion, phenomena that recur, independently of the way in which they are perceived, are more likely to be maintained in memory and facilitate the retention phase. Francis Heylighen - Proc. 15th Int. Congress on Cybernetics (Association Internat. de Cybernétique, Namur).
