retro-quotes #6868584 (the return)

"For stasis, as I intend the term, is not an absence of novelty and change — a total quiescence — but rather the absence of ordered sequential change. Like molecules rushing about haphazardly in a Brownian movement, a culture bustling with activity and change may nevertheless be static." 

from Leonard B. Meyer's 1967 book, Music, The Arts, and Ideas
