Where does the energy for change come from? My hypothesis is informed by an HSD idea. We need the energy that comes from “difference”, and then we combine that with “insight”, stemming from tolerating enough of the difference for long enough to spark something new in us and between us. My analogy is this: if you connect the two poles of a battery directly with a wire, you get little use out of the inherent energy in the difference between the poles. You need something that resists the energy difference enough for something to flow usefully. Like a light bulb or an actual resistor.
