In many cases, however, it is not possible to ‘raise the ceiling’ through modification and the cell, or whatever, will begin to oscillate wildly in an attempt to avoid the inevitable (the ‘hausse’ in the economic cycle which precedes crisis and depression). As a result of these oscillations the phenomenon may become so changed as to be unrecognizable, that is it mutates or diversifies and recommences life in an entirely new guise. Alternatively, the phenomenon may accept the inevitable, smoothing out the oscillations and settling in equilibrium at a stable limit or, under different circumstances, slowly decline to nothing.

In doing so it is following closely the precedents set by professions such as medicine, architecture and engineering, all of which have also been practised for thousands of years and have built up a wealth of descriptive information concerning the art which has both chronicled and advanced its evolution. At some juncture, however, continued progress demands a transition from description to analysis, such as that initiated by Harvey’s discovery of the circulation of the blood.
