I am hopeful this is in reference to the outcome of the upcoming presidential election.

C = larger than you think.

There is no new thing under the sun, history repeats itself, etc.

David said...

I agree with the other David. The change is mostly in your head.

Brian said...

History repeats itself only if you give it enough time; however, maybe we're looking at a smaller snippet of time in which radical change is imminent and history won't necessarily repeat itself soon.

The change might only initially be in our heads, but if we put our heads together, it can create real change.

(I moonlight as an Obama supporter, obviously.)

Beautiful and clever. Life is really so unpredictable.

Just wanted to add that this is a wonderful formulation of the Buddhist concept of impermanence too.

Well done.

I see the davids' points.
In the long run, I don't think humanity changes as much as we think we do.

In our methods, we are different. In our nature, we're pretty much as we've always been.

what's Tb - Ta? I'd claim instead that the derivative of change is constant :P

This is really funny. Thanks.

This is basically all I write about on one of my blogs, http://optimistworld.blogspot.com/ ... most of the posts (I've been writing every day for about a week) have been about the various changes that the world is undergoing and how the US can stay competitive in an increasingly global economy.

I read a quote in key west that is appropriate, but can't verify it... "Sure things change, but they change slowly, and the more I drink the more they seem the same." Ernest Hemmingway. There's some sense there... things change slowly, so don't worry about it, and if you're enjoying the moment then it doesn't matter anyway.

People keep telling me this yet I've yet to see the evidence. :(
