Ultimately, they are all connected FROM an historical point of view; so could one take now and project today’s intention back to original authors in order to influence their intent? Bang a drum and goes into the drum as well as out; no idea in the noise of the past if the present intent can go back into it; or if perhaps today’s intent is influenced by reverberations of the past making it seem “as if” the present has influenced the past but really it was the past the influenced the present; connecting them indelibly to someone watching closely. So it wouldn’t matter then how its viewed so long as the connection is emphasized; would it mean lose of a locus of control from the present if the past is credited? Would it be a dishonest locus of control if the present is credited for an intent in the past? Maybe. But it maps.
