The OED defines “flow” as: (noun) “movement in a current or stream;…the  gradual deformation of a solid under pressure;…continuous movement;…a  flood;…” (verb) to move on a gently inclined surface;…to circulate;…to  suffer a permanent, non-elastic change;…to issue or proceed from;…to be  in flood;…” Nowhere does it mention capital “F” flow as in the state of  aroused hyper-attentiveness coined by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi.

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is developing an innovative program in immersive experiential learning known as Thematic Interdisciplinary Experiential Semester (TIES). The program seeks to provide participants with a truly transformative experience in a rigorous, challenging, interdisciplinary, project-based program designed to examine a central theme from a variety of scientific, cultural, economic and political perspectives. TIES Argentina is a pilot program launched in Spring 2011 involving a collaborative interdisciplinary effort by faculty in biology, economics, geology and Latin American studies focusing on the natural and cultural setting of Mendoza, Argentina.
This are Alex, Greg, and Tom explaining the deformation of the Malargue fold and thrust belt.

Anticlines and synclines commonly found         next to each other. This mountain side in the Canadian         Rockies exposes a good example of an anticline-syncline         pair.
(Note that the darker green         areas on the side of the mountain are full grown trees)

A panhole is a depressed, erosional feature found on flat or gently  sloping rock. Panholes are the result of long-term weathering and are  generally seen on bedrock or very large blocks of rock. They are  generally characterized by flat bottoms and sometimes by overhanging  sides.

The importance of holes: the properties of porous rocks and their role in deformation and metamorphism- Geology PhD project 2010 - Univercity of Liverpool
 photomicrograph (in plane  polarized light) showing the development of porosity in  rock that has transformed by dehydration from gypsum to bassanite. The  resultant pore pressures could cause embrittlement and failure of rocks  such as these in nature.

The Canterbury Earthquake: Images of the distorted railway line
Note how the rails show high levels of deformation whilst the  surrounding ground shows comparatively little.  Notice also how the big  kink on the left side has pushed the ballast aside and into the track  side ditch  This has happened on the right side too, but to a lesser  extent.
