Self renewal in this way is a pure choice. Volitive. And I think that is what produces style.
As for c^2, I surmised it’s because c being equal to the value of energy as such, since a photon is simply unmassed energy, you square it to push that value into another dimension, like building a square out of a straight line. 2^2=4, 3^2=9, c^2= matter. More specifically, matter = c^2 - c^2/m, since existing m (matter) derived from loss of c as pure energy and that subtracts from the pure energy value squared into dimensional existence.
If anyone has style, it’s god.
