    I fear it's all much more complex even.

    I mean i could watch a film and there would be a scene without words
    which touches me and this scene might change my attitude towards
    somethin resulting in different words or behaviors...

    Or take the example of a director who makes a film after the book.
    A book from a film, a song for a film, a song influenced from a film,
    a book influenced from a picture, a picture influenced from a
    landscape, a landscape influenced by an architects drawing, an
    archtiects drawing influenced by a ancient drawing, an ancient
    drawing influenced by the 'golden section' ....
