OI: Breakdowns happen to us, and they are not good.
NI: In generative language, breakdowns are created through an act of declaration. Interruptions happen to us, and we may choose to declare a breakdown. Interruptions are not good or bad. Our claim is that interruptions are nothing but a break in your transparency. An interruption disrupts the ‘established order’, and this established order was transparent till the ‘interruption’ took place. An interruption implies a change in your space of possibilities. What we assumed was possible before may no longer be possible or what we assumed may not be possible before may suddenly become a possibility. When you declare a breakdown, you actively participate in the process of designing a future of your choice.
