This morning I was going to include with this the dictionary.com definition of my word - resolve. Imagine my surprise when I found so many meanings! See for yourself:

2. to separate into constituent or elementary parts; break up; cause or disintegrate (usually followed by into ).
3. to reduce or convert by, or as by, breaking up or disintegration (usually followed by to or into ).

While I appreciate all the ways these various definitions of "resolve" fit into my plan, I actually am quite fond of #12/16 - "to progress from a dissonance to a consonance" That's really the goal.
