Jean Jacket, Crewcut, and Contacts?

What happens to advanced artists if the advanced theory becomes widely known? I guess that, according to the theory, they would have to abandon the traditional advanced ways. But then again, that would be doing the opposite of what is expected of them, so who knows what they'll do? And what of the wannabes? They'll start doing things that fit into the theory, but they will be doing it overtly, so they'll still be overt. Luckily, though, anyway you dress it up, advancement can't be faked. That's why when an advanced artist does something that doesn't quite fit in with the theory, it still "feels" advanced.
