Let The Power Fall
Robert Fripp (1981)

I
1 One can work within any structure.
2 Once one can work within any structure, some structures are more efficient than others.
3 There is no structure which is universally appropriate.
4 Commitment to an aim within an inappropriate structure will give rise to the creation of an appropriate structure.
5 Apathy, ie passive commitment, within an appropriate structure will effect its collapse.
6 Dogmatic attachment to the supposed merits of a particular structure hinders the search for an appropriate structure.
7 There will be difficulty defining the appropriate structure because it will be always mobile, ie in process.

II
8 There should be no difficulty in defining aim.
9 The appropriate structure will recognize structures outside itself.
10 The appropriate structure can work within any large structure.
11 Once the appropriate structure can work within any large structure, some larger structure are more efficient than others.
12 There is no larger structure which is universally appropriate.
13 Commitment to an aim by an appropriate structure within a larger, inappropriate structure will give rise to a large, appropriate structure.
14 The quantitive structure is affected by qualitative action.

III
15 Qualitative action is not bound by numbers.
16 Any small unit committed to qualitative action can affect radical change on a scale outside its quantitative measure.
17 Quantitative action works by violence and breeds reaction.
18 Qualitative action works by example and invites reciprocation.
19 Reciprocation between independent structures is a framework of interacting units which is itself a structure.
20 Any appropriate structure of interacting units can work within any other structure of interacting units.
21 Once this is so, some structures of interacting untis are more efficient than others.
