If this is possible--and someone comes up with a way to do it in POV-Ray--then I
see all sorts of interesting possibilities.

A 'conceptual' example could be something like this:

object{
     my_mesh_2_object
     translate -clock*z
     warp{turbulence...}
     translate clock*z
      }

....which would move the turbulence through the mesh.

Of course, the *reality* of moving all the triangle vertices around in this way,
in a coherent fashion, might be a tough coding problem.
