FLUX.

"All is flux." - Heraclitus.

I don't know what life holds.
I don't possess clear vision of the "road ahead."
I don't know.
And that is GOOD.

DISCLAIMER: In an effort to recover from my previous post's usage of modernistic bulleted notes I am defining flux as continuous, fluid movement as opposed to the modern science notions involving measured rates of movement, strength of a force, or a refining substance. Though all may be applicable my original thought processed the existential movement through life.

DISCLAIMER II: I do not necessarily embrace all the thought of the pre-Socratic, Ionian philosopher Heraclitus nor do I necessarily dismiss all his propositions.

I dont seem to understand. Are we saying that useing bullet points, or other "modern" contributions are somehow wrong? Or are we just making fun of this culture? If so then where are the jokes, and stabs about this new culture, and everything that is wrong with it??????????????

Just a thought...........

Steb,
I am interested to see your definition of "this new culture."
One poke at "this new culture" is found in my November 13 entry entitle, "Tony."
More importantly, I would hope that a man of your knowledge would find the humor in ripping on bullet points while still using the modern system of definition labeling. It is a sarcastic oxymoron intended for the humor of those readers who are understand the modern / postmodern dialogue.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
