On the movement of static things #10:
We perceive ageing erratically, self-imposing a form of denial, making time stand still. We put aside any evidence of ageing, protecting the sense of self, thinking that the unique identity we perceive as us, is a static entity. Unless our perception is disrupted by external forces, we’ll believe that we haven’t aged. We live with an impression of constancy, with our status an unchanging state, believing we control movement or change and can avoid it. Can we be the same in the morning after a night of dreaming that made every wish possible?
