Stillness

By Nik Gaffney, with a foreword by me...

Movement is a deeply strange and paradoxical phenomenon, yet we see it all around us all the time. Many philosophers can’t cope with how paradoxical it is — think about Zeno and his paradoxes — so they try to get rid of it, by arguing that movement is just an illusion.

Yeah Heraclitus and all those guys for whom movement defined life. Love all refs to Zeno!

Ye speaketh in riddles I have decided. Wonderous imagery and love the pull quote about art becoming when humans are inhabited. Still trying to be open enough to think in this manner
