Yes! Nice phrase, Nick. p-p-p-perpetual popping is the only defense
against the institutional tide. If we gotta institutionalize anything,
let's make it forms that fundamentally include movement. If we
institutionalize movement maybe we have to expend so much effort
periodically dislodging entrenched and petrified structures? or am I
really off my nut with that one?

Or there ain't no such thing as stability except in short bursts. Chaos is
the oscillation between stability and turbulence (or at least there's one
way to portray it). Chaos never goes away. We just periodically decline to
acknowledge it :)
