What are the Three Laws of Memetics?

They are:

  1. The Law of Intention: Memes replicate for their reasons, not ours.
  2. The Law of Propagation: A meme thrives only through a frequent cycle of demonstration, observation and imitation.
  3. The Law of Gravitation: A meme tends to move from the cultural fringe toward the cultural center.
