Over the years, many things have been said in the gallery about the
delivery methods deployed making

front and center stage,
when the possibility of
first became real
in the world,
when that fish walked up on land for the first time bringing with it
and eagles like a possibility, it was said the delivery methods
were harsh, austere, even arrogant. Whereas the
master jogs his students with a tap on the shoulder, some called
the "two by four over the head" approach to enlightenment.
Of course, there wasn't ever a two by four anywhere in sight. But
that's what they called it anyway.
Lately in the same gallery it's been said the current iteration of

kinder, gentler delivery methods are a result of a new intention coming
from savvy marketing which realizes a less arduous approach is required
to maintain customer interest.

An island of stability in an ever changing universe, this intention
