: : : 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

: : : : : 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?
