Oliver Payne at Overduin & Co.

Payne' treats ideas as objects that can be held, manipulated, attached. Each object illustrative of a concept. The PR's Miller's Law, you can hold all seven your head and juggle them if you like. The main theme of them is macro to the individual to the commons, swarm intelligence and so on and so forth. This like Conceptual Art itself where objects become representations of concepts, where objects are not individuated things governed by a rule set and thus exchangeable. The opposite of the object oriented oncologists. Not the drawing on the wall but the instructions which allow it to be placed.  Certificates of authenticity governed by critical mass of belief, and bitcoinian Blockchain. Watch the one man rave. The singular object becomes representative of the concept and manifests the commons, the Dance Party. The psychoactive element is seeing the singular and knowing it as concept, manifesting the dance party without it being one, the thing as only a representation of concept, Platonic Psychosis.

There's another Miller's law, oddly of the same Miller:
It instructs us to suspend judgment about what someone is saying so we can first understand them without imbuing their message with our own personal interpretations.
The law states: "To understand what another person is saying, you must assume that it is true and try to imagine what it could be true of."
