Perturbation, also called confusion, in general the opposite of stasis. More like a disturbance or the migration of materials. Whatever does not go smoothly, but whirls about. Rises uncontrolled, gets entangled with itself or another. Dancing molecules in the atmosphere CO2, SO2, NOx, NH3, and whatever they are all called. Their chemistry is reflected in the political and in the social. Effectivities and valences here as well. Heat cycles behaving anomalously. Disturbances leading to destruction. In the confusion lies the clue that we follow here. Always a bit off track, as it seems. Crisis? Process! Why do we have such a hard time thinking change? As if we were immortal . . .
