I think associating aesthetics with control is really problematic; instead
I wd use a model based on catastrophe theory, the 'fragility of good
things' and the relation of that to sudden disturbances that produce a
sense of novelty, passion, excitement, anything at all, depression,
fierceness, lassitude... in other words the opposite; aesthetics is one
area that control is unnecessary, otherwise we might all end up with
swastikas! :-)

Best, Alan, and thanks! (who used to love Studebaker design btw) and manual
window-cranks! forgot those! yes!
