So as accurate
to "transform" something has colloquially come to mean to "change"
it - and worse, to "fix" it, to "improve" it, to make it "right",
to make it "better" etc etc. The feel-good warm fuzzy
that it's in danger of being obfuscated by, looms menacingly.
In fact it's none of the above. To "transform" something, is to
create / generate / be responsible for the
in which it shows up. In its purest sense, to transform something
it (I love that word).
Without this definition thoroughly scrutinized and firmly bolted in
place in this conversation's boilerplate, it's unlikely that the
"I can't transform what I
will have lasting power, if any at all.
