I am thinking of using aspect modulators (sorta like adverbs) in Viivo.
Some are similar to this idea of "flow":
_alea_ randomly occurring, periodically
_fluxii_ in flucuation (sp?), constantly
_nadii_ streaming, indeterminate to whether constant or periodic
These aspect conceptualizations tie-in with Viivo's _CaosCultura_.
