but my point is that they keep on going, they didn't just stop.

They dont stop but they dont stay the same is my point, therefore in a sense they dont continue, since they arent the same, but they do continue in the way that they spawned the future ones.

only technically. and I know, I know, the world is ruled on technicalities. but overall, I don't think it's a change, although it has the potential to be a change. you could remember something that you read back in the day that meant nothing to you then, but suddenly it jumps into your head from nowhere, and makes so much sense that you do change in a very large way. or perhaps it doesn't make sense, it just appeals to you.

Well also every five minutes an immeaureable amount of cells are born and die so that your body itself may live too. And whether it has the ability or not varies as well too. Damned hard question to answer there.

i think the answer is, we change but the changes are so subtle we dont notice them til they are complete.

I mean when your 5 and really small, and cant talk much you dont suddenly wake up one morning and go oh gosh!! im 16!!!! you never actually realise at the time, but you look back at a photo 2 years ago, or look through a poem you wrote and think..... ahhh, how ive changed!!

so its both of what you two think, beest is right, your different to what you where 5 mins ago, but you wont realise how different until a year later.

dya get me??

However good cannot sustain alone, one can only realize what good is with bad, and vice versa. Still cleared up?

I dont think so. I think one can know good without knowing evil (using very general terms here just to make apoint)

How can you classify something without something to comare it to? Its literally impossible. If you're only subject used to hardship, thats the bad norm, and being freed from it is good.

If you're well enough off, then you're probably feeling good, when it goes away, its bad, but if you never lose it then its just "the norm"

You see how classification works? It needs to have a comparable neutral or opposite point to even exist here.

what's wrong with good being the norm? Why do you have to classify it?

to put it bluntly, that's what humans do best. we classify everythning. if we can't classify it, we still classify it as 'Unknown' or an 'anomoly'. basically, it's so we can be smartasses to each other. at least that's my idea.

I didnt classify "good" as the norm, i classified it in both ways with two different examples. "good" as the life before it went "bad" (the "norm" was "good" here), and "good" as the life after it became so (the "norm" was "bad" here).
