Thought on Heraclitus Bullet

Posted to Utterances




So he believed in the eternal flame of the universal substance for which all else is created , the creating fire. Now this went into change and thus flux and that there is constant flux , how can anything truly be know since change happens just happened , just happened , just happened. The ocean you just stepped in is not the same ocean as the next step you take ... another version of the famous example. But what about the bullet in the gun , the chamber , the fire , the man , the point , the mechanism as it moves. Now in Russian Roulette there is a game of odds and luck , but more at the inevitability of odds .. someone will eventually go... So each time the chamber is spins and the odds change , does the bullet change , does the man change, as it get's closer to blowing out the back of your head ? is the change naturally being pulled towards the odds of death as the mathematical universe or do we will the bullet to stop and go ?
Does change become accelerated at these points ... the universe of points and nature ....
