Come along for this wild white water ride where everything is becoming and nothing ever is. For no one walks into this same river twice; Life is flow in constant flux.
Auteur's Statement of Intention:
With Panta, I wish to present the radical yet, I believe, self evident concept of life as a flow in a constant state of flux.
This concept is placed against a countervailing force within the Human Psyche Carl Jung describes as:
"We want to have certainties and no doubts - results and no experiments - without even seeing that certainties can arise only through doubt and results only through experiment..." (Stages of Life)
I believe what Jung describes above is a major cause of Human Neurosis which can be relieved by properly aligning such expectations to this philosophy of "Panta Rhei" which is aptly described by Plato as:
"Nothing ever is, everything is becoming"; "All things are in motion like streams"; "All things are passing, and nothing abides"; (Plato, Crytalus)
If we look at life as "a flow in a constant state of flux", these expectations Jung mentions can quickly dissipate.
We can then spend our time much more wisely, placing ourselves into the current of life in the right place at the right time toward a destination of our choosing.
