the explanatory power of osmosis

A lot is explained by osmosis, which consists of movement of solvent, tending to equalize concentration of solute. (For example, this explains the paradoxical situation that you die of thirst if you drink sea water.) Society itself undergoes osmosis, with people being the solvent and literature being the solute. This is what the ‘sacred texts’ of religion have been all about since ancient times.
