Driving Under the Influences

influence in flux influences influences in flux.
(repeat ad infi.nauseam)

making/declaring a re-usable class of a statement in brian's post:
"[ ] are my main [ ] influences"
and inserting combinations from previous posts:
"[quotations] are my main [notational] influences."
"[repositioning of propellants] is my main [hypnotic] influence."
"[not listening at all to the tame chisel] is my main [non-desparing dialetical] influence."

    Part of the deal with constraint-based writing systems is that they can lead you to utterances and configurations you never would have come to "on your own".

    This can be a problem, since you are always already responsible for the b.s. that issues from your tongue and pen.

    There are several modes of surveillance that occur at the nerve-nexes collectively named, "the exit".

    And to reverse-engineer Pickover's assertion (in search of its use-value), any system that accepts inputs will destabilize, and this can be measured -- stability quantizes as the inverse of activity.

    Such Order from Confusion sprung,
    Such gaudy Tulips rais'd from Dung.
