Dust in the wind...
    #4419531 - 07/18/05 04:56 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Sometimes, when the conditions are just right, a few billion individual grains of dust will come together and form something new...something that is "more" than the sum of all those grains. Something that, while its constituent parts existed before, did not itself "exist" until the conditions were right and the grains came together. Something that is entirely "unlikely" to exist...when all we look at is the grains themselves.

Thus a dust devil comes to life. It twirls around, seemingly at random (obeying its own "free choice"), perhaps picking up some small leaves or rubbish along the way.

Then, always, it comes to an end. The conditions change, no longer able to support it. As quickly as this dust devil came into being, it collapses and ceases to be. The parts, the grains, do not cease to exist...but the larger whole, the "dust devil", does not exist any longer.

It would have been even deeper if I posted it in the right damned forum :smirk:

Aww, you should've just left it. It was a great analogy.

this had to be done

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

[Now] Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy.

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind, everything is dust in the wind.


:sun: :heart: :sun:
