Sometimes my view changes 180 degrees on things as I discover something new, or read something that changes my mind. Indeed I did up until say 10 years ago also accept it was all ritual; can't remember what the precise thing or things were that changed my mind, or rather made me question it.

Letīs blame Gareth for it - he has conducted a crusade with the intent to present a take where everything is a mass of sloppy cutting with no aim or intent at all. He wrote a dissertation called "By accident or by design", and I loved it to bits - back then.

Now that I think I have the key, I am much less enthusiastic about it.
