discipline + a discipline
As alluded to in previous posts, 'becoming' is a process that involves the coalescence of experience and refinement of craft, where 'become' is represented as finite milestone defined by quantifiable artifacts such as credentials, certificates, diplomas, and accolades. The relationship between becoming and become can be metaphorically connected by comparison to the idea of discipline as pure homonym, that is, as both verb and noun. Simply put, becoming enveloped within a discipline requires discipline.
