Think of it like this:
If The Beatles enrolled only their Liverpool Cavern Club fans in the possibility of their music, they'd have become one kind of band. They would have been OK, just fine that way. Did they have to enroll the whole world in the possibility of their music? No, they didn't have to. No one said they had to. No one made them do it.
But they did enroll the whole world in the possibility of their music, and they had the time of their lives doing it. That's why today they're the greatest rock 'n roll band that ever was (and, possibly, ever will be). That, even though none of The Beatles participated in Werner's work although Yoko Ono did. She realized the value of it, saying "Werner's got a good gig.". Calmly persistent in the face of his initial resistance to the idea, Yoko enrolled John in participating. His registration, however, was cut short by his untimely demise.
Even if they didn't yet have access to the language tools Werner later developed constituted in his Magnum Opus of transformation, The Beatles knew if it's a possibility, if it's in authentic possibility, it's inspiring. "Inspiring" is a word which simply must be included in any worthwhile dictionary definition of possibility. A possibility is inspiring. The newness of it, the "Wow!" of seeing it for the first time, the very ... well ... possibility of it (if you'll excuse my self referential speaking) calls forth enthusiasm. Its expression is hardly constrained. Enthusiasm born from it makes it hard to constrain. No agreement is required for it to engender enthusiasm. No approval is required to validate its enthusiasm. The enthusiasm component is there from the get go. From then on, it's a matter of sharing it. But that's easy. It's not a chore. Genuine enthusiasm requires very little heat from the stove for it to boil over - if it's born from an authentic possibility to begin with.
