Transformation. The changes that occur in the world as a consequence of meaning, where the configuration of interests may in some circumstances remain essentially the same (replication), where they are changed in small ways (hacks of recognition or redistribution), or where fundamental changes are effected in patterns of meaning (paradigmatic or revolutionary change).
