Philosophy Tuesday

June 24, 2014

This is a philosophical statement. It is intended to spark thinking and examining.

We are not fixed objects, set in stone.

We often place a lot of weight on “who we are” and “what we’re capable of” – or not, in either of those cases – with the implicit statement that we are describing some fundamental impenetrable character that shall forever be.

It may have been this way for a long time, we may only know ourselves to be a certain way, and even others may only know us to be a certain way.

Yet that past means nothing. With the right access, years upon years upon known years of history can flip, melt, open, and present a new canvas.

We all have the amazing capacity to alter, develop, grow, and transform.

And thus, so do our relations, institutions, circles, and societies.

We are not fixed objects, set in stone.
