    Thanks for your respons ! Yeah what about compulsive addiction !? Would ' thinking too much ' ( ' I can go on for hours with that drivel inside my head, it is more or less the prettiest pastime I know ' ) says Kit, a character in a book written by C. Palmen ( The friendship)) be- come a pathomeme by and in itself !? The little Kit is so good in ' thinking ' that talking, yet alone doing something becomes problematic.

    Are ' her ' memes in total control over her body, mind and soul !?
