Behavioral Pavement

Originality is taking a machete to the untouched overgrowth of the future. A faint trail is left by the innovative, and every subsequent action there wears a wider path through the wilds of history. Some paths turn out to be more popular than others and specific actions are repeated in specific locations again and again, wearing down the fabric of potential at that location. It's like laying down behavioral pavement. Eventually, nothing can happen in that space except hollow reenactment.

Places get haunted and we get possessed.

In the spirit of ghost-hunting, Abbey Road Studios have installed a live webcam on the famed crosswalk outside their walls to capture this phenomenon.
