Ouroboros-like Logic

It is particularly apparent in art and design that cultural evolution and its associated historical development and metamorphosis consists of a fundamentally incomplete logical system of complex, open and creative self-reference. In those many instances where cultural systems have been locked down and dramatically restricted we generally see them for lack of creative sustenance turn on themselves and become problematically self-consuming. Ouroboros-like self-consumption is already how this game is played at a global or holistic level but in isolation it tends to develop pathological aspects. Any culture which wilfully consumes only its own internal self-imagery and narratives is very likely predestined for psychotic departure from healthy development and narrative or social self-propagation.
