Method, Manner, Motion

Predictability may be more distracting than the apparently random or chaotic.

The purposes of customary and routine actions are for the most part desirable and necessary, organization being of value in terms of aims and intentions.  It is the loss of dynamic engagement with any activity that becomes enervating.

In the arts especially, it is the dullness of repetitive thinking that dims the imagination.

Perceptual and intellectual limits are not necessarily abhorrent in themselves, provided they are understood as obstacles to be overcome, and actions are taken accordingly.

That which would be filled must also be made empty.
