This is not to say that we cannot alter the direction of the drift for example by what we do in languaging since this (languaging) defines conditions in which the drift takes place. If we language one way ("you're beautiful") the drift goes this way rather than that way ("you look terrible"). The human dilemma is that we want to pretend to control our lives (and others' lives) as if we could specify the outcome of the drifting pattern.
