Terra Incognita

Think in linear terms and move accordingly.

Predictability has its virtues, depending on outcomes and goals.  Methodologies and techniques, for example, are crafted to assure specific outcomes that can be reproduced.

If, on the other hand, it is necessary to set aside the given in order to reveal unknown possibilities, there will be no advancement without acceptance of risk, and linear thought is an obstacle to be overcome.  This is a choice among many the artist must make in pursuit of aesthetic integrity.
