There are plenty of elements that are instrumental in the composition of a systematic motif, lingering in the depths of a powerful song and acting as a cohesive foundation of its structural dimensions.  Of these many elements, there are some that are, in themselves, constituent systems involved in forming the overall design of a universal system.  The systems of time, religion and money manufacturing are among those of which most people are inclined to abide on some level or another, and yet, it can be argued, none of these examples can validly exist beyond the piety of sincere belief.  Systems are contrived, this conclusion supposes, lest they possess the virtues of order and collectivism --  whether such outcomes were intended at first or not -- and when this is not recognized, the insidious disposition of their powers grow to become controlling over the masses of devout people that they have been constructed to console.
