: from eldras:

: I pondered this for years.

: I conclude there is only one absolute possible. Because to know of another is to have contact with it, which is to change it. therefore it can not be an absolute.

: There ARE laws. And these hold for a while.

: Everything's relative.

: i think you may find you arrive at tow questions:

: what is 'difference' and what are parameters.

: then on to what are the fundamental forces in the cosmos, and how do they function?

Does "sentrise" (sp?) enter into the equation at some point? (I recall your using
that word long ago.)

Wordsmith : )

: Ta Salutant!

: : At the present time i don't know ?
: : But after 2 seconds i have a different point of vue with my first question ?

: : : The only absolute is there are no absolutes;
: : : discuss

: : : I once sat under a tree for many hours contemplating this, even perhaps realizing it. I do not necessaryily agree with this now in light of certain experiences I have had, but they could be explained in terms of psychology. Anyway - anyone got any thoughts?
