“Currents in currents”

Currents in currents.

Cross currents, countercurrents,
  blending, parting;
Small currents, large currents,
  increasing, decreasing;
Stable currents, transient currents,
  appearing, vanishing.

Currents all the way down. Yet

Not all fluids are alike;
  water is not honey.
Not all fluids flow the same way;
  honey is not pitch.

Fluids are more diverse than your thoughts.

Is your notion of fluidity fixed,
  or can you change your thinking?
