On the movement of static things #4:
Static implies permanency: in permanency, the micro changes are absorbed and instinctively ignored. We resist change, imposing the illusion of a flowing river in which we travel, rather than imagining that over time we are ageing and degrading. The idea of life being modelled as a depreciating asset repels us; we are buoyed instead with the myth that all we lose, we regain more in wisdom and experience. In the river, we miss the jumps, the perception, the opportunity, to step out into the expected, into light that highlights our fractures, our growth.
