Only one person knows at first. He communicates to one or more of the company of what is to happen without stating anything definite, (for he might not know for certain himself at this point) by suggesting, demonstrating, implying, questioning. As he communicates thus to some, so they in turn communicate to others and out of ideas, actions emerge, at first by individuals but gradually by groups of people getting larger and larger and less and less as the actions converge on each other with increasing concordance of aims. In this way the implications of the start form the actions of now. The rite ends when everyone is doing the same thing.
