Goddamnit Wanyoung, stop putting the rest of us to shame with your Blanchot translations.

cramulus:

This fact of change so impressed Heraclitus, a son of a noble family in Ephesus, that he concluded that fire was the original “stuff” of which all else in the universe was made. Fire, he believed, was forever changing, never still, never the same. Since everything is constantly changing, since change is the fundamental characteristic of the universe. “You could not,” he wrote, “step twice into the same river, for other and yet other waters are ever flowing on.” There is nothing permeant, stable. Change is all that is.

We may think that we see things that do not change, Heraclitus taught, but we are fooled. If we could really see what is happening, if we had eyes powerful enough to see exactly what is happening , we would realize that even the most stable thing in the universe is actually changing all the time. The universe, then, is ruled by “strife.”(Eris

-The Basic Teachings of the Great Philosophers S.E. Frost

I had never read Eris wrapped into Heraclitus’ EVERYTHING IS FIRE’ philosophy. I dig that, talking about Eris more as a symbol of universal continual change and upheaval, one moment transcending the next, than treating her as this specifically Greco Roman figure.

Fields of Blue Flowers in Japan

In the Hitashi Seaside Park in Japan, infinite fields of nemophilas roll out like carpets of flowers on 190 hectares. We have gathered the best photos of this insolite place which appeals the tourists. Photographers must retouch their photos to erase the presence of people in the fields.
