    To the contrary, I view performance with a very wide lens. But at least I acknowledge it- you seem to think it somehow is not necessary.

    That newspaper article you mention- is that not a performance? Of course it is.

    This statement is ludicrously meaningless to the performance model.

    Herein somewhat modified to make some sense to the performance model-

    "A performance might alter the gestalt in which it occurs, and other performances following it might alter the gestalt even more, or reinforce the ability to continue similar performances."
