"Whosoever wishes to know about the world
must learn about it in its particular details.
Knowledge is not intelligence.
In searching for the truth be ready for the unexpected.
Change alone is unchanging.
The same road goes both up and down.
The beginning of a circle is also its end.
Not I, but the world says it: all is one.
And yet everything comes in season."
by:
Heraclitus
(c.540-480 BC) Greek philosopher

It's a big universe. We are but tiny specks on the side of a dust ball floating through space. And yet each speck has within it another universe... (deep, huh?) ;-)

    Of course. But I especially like knowledge is not intelligence as evidenced so frequently on this blog.

    "Change alone is unchanging."

    Heraclitus would never have made it as a Christian.

    "Change alone is unchanging" - if that statement is true and all things change, then at some time the truth of that statement will change.

    In other words, it's nice poetry, but it's stupid logic.

    Well, I have had my Wheaties, Got my hippie on, and all before noon. Colin, thanks, for the only accurate analysis.
