Tree

A form of a “useless meme,” according to Dr. Susan Blackmore, is Toilegami or Toilet Paper Origami.  http://blog.ted.com/folding_a_new_m/  

I don’t agree that folding toilet paper is “useless.” Perhaps the staff who fold these papers derive as much amusement as I did while folding the tree below.

What is a meme?  Memes, Blackmore believes, is one of the human “universal purposes of life” – something which is evolving, replicating and spread among humans.
