>Wouldn't change be a constant of the human experience?
Yes, I thought that was what I said.
>And isn't an influence a change in and of itself?
No. Being that I am a metaphysician I think changes occur first on an inner(unseen level) and then it is reflected in the outer(physical) world.
Change that occurs the other way around is manipulation. Media manipulation of art is called popular culture.
