: : 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?
