flux and change, in which the lorry and the lorry driver acted as both channels

But whatever it is called, the prevailing wisdom is highly resistant to change—that
is how it remains the prevailing wisdom. Changing the prevailing wisdom
requires intense agitation toward a new prevailing wisdom by simultaneously
