There's spelling things out, and there's letting the spell work.

Spelling things out is "We're going from here to there and this is precisely the path to take."

Letting the spell work is different. Put some people and things in the region of each other, and let the space between them change as it will.

You've go to be fond of the people and things to do that.

Taking path 2 means we're not going from Point A to Point B.

We are changing the space in which Point A and Point B exist. We are being changed ourselves in the process is living in the changing space.

We emerge into a new world in the same place, for which we are all equally unprepared.

We sing songs of thanksgiving, remembering what the old, familiar world was like. We learn much fast.
