Flux ... Change

When we say things like "people don't change"

it drives scientists crazy.

Because Change is literally the only constant

in all of science.

Energy, matter, it's always changing.

Morphing, merging, growing, dying.

It's the way people try not to change

that's unnatural.

The way we cling to what things were

instead of letting them be what they are.

The way we cling to old memories

instead of forming new ones.

The way we insist on believing,

despite every scientific indication

that anything in this lifetime is permanent.

Change is constant.

How we experience change:

that's up to us.

It can feel like death

Or it can feel like a second chance at life.

If we open our fingers

Loosen our grips

Go with it

It can feel like pure adrenaline.

Like at any moment

we can have another chance at life.

Like at any moment

We can be born all over again.
