if you lose your balance, you will find whatever it is you crash into, stability would be nice but as a falling objects, we are slaves to inertia. and judging by the world we live in, stability is not a very big force and will, most likely, be destroyed by our descent. or not.

When you lose your balance, you will find equilibrium ....becos everyone of us will try their best to balance....thus equilibrium is found....but why do you lose your balance ....does it mean you lose balance in order to find equilibruim ....but for me i rather keep balance so that i am always in equilibrium and need not find it .....:)

anne artist said...

s.a., is balance the same as equilibrium?

anne artist said...

sir, all i can say is.....wow.....

if i recognize that i am a falling object, then does that enable me to find equilibrium?

yes, we are slaves to inertia.....do we think it is stability? and could our descent do other than destroy it?

"or not".

It can help you, because equilibrium is a point of reference, if you realize you are a falling object then you can work with that and find your equilibrium.

But would you dance?

anne artist said...

and is a point of reference fluid? and i i find it, will it transform into a non point and once again i will fall, looking for it, finding it, losing it?

and if i dance, will you say that my feet seem as light as air?

Perhaps we are in a constant state of imbalance and when we lose that, we are merely transitioning into another state of mind. In this respect, there is no balance or imbalance... just comfort and possibility.

anne artist said...

mwb. so if i lose my mind, my mind fills with possibility......?

The militant working boy said...

What if our minds are currently lost and we are spending our lives trying to find them?

anne artist said...

and are we spending our lives trying to find something beyond understanding?

is the concept of "mind" culturally conditioned. as in, when we grew up, we were told to "mind" our elders? when i am asked to do something the asker believes i do no want to do, i am asked, if i "mind".....this is causing me to wonder if i mind our concept of "mind".

and that leads me to ask, if the mind "minds", is that actually the mind?

Lazarus Lupin said...

you can have balance and imbalance in the same system. A water wheel works because there is an imbalance between the water up top wanting to get to the bottom, yet from that imbalance comes the smooth balanced revolutions of the wheel itself. So our mind could be constantly seeking a balance, an equilibrium unaware that we are part of a larger more stable system. The soul as our wheel.

l.l., to look in the distance enables us to see up close.....

The mind is only the mind when it does not mind the mind.

anne artist said...

mwb.....yes!

There is chaos in the mind before it awakens, someone said. Destruction can lead to reconstruction. Why do we fall? So that we can get back up again (from The Dark Knight).

anne artist said...

p.h., it seems that if we did not fall, we would not regard standing upright in the same way. we might not even notice we were doing it.....
