|When I throw rocks at seagulls|
StaticsThis is a small course in not moving. We have called this statics. We try to approach this as serious as can be and for a reason: your rock is mostly static and knowing about statics means knowing your rock. This will lead into a better rock-human relationship that might be beneficial for both. Become your rock, shed off some stress and be static and you will feel better too.
Part 1Not moving is harder than you think. Try holding your breath for more than five minutes and it will work out for you. The problem however is in the first five minutes. Of course we will not ask you to hold your breath for five minutes. This was just to prove the point.
We do not think not moving is beneficial in general but understanding the state of not moving can't hurt.
Part 2Not moving means avoiding action, not necessarily by choice but for lack of options. One can move and still be static. Moving is not a part of being static and can even coincide. Rather strongly: all things move yet most things are static. So what is this static being?
Part 3Being static means not moving in comparison to something else. But what?
This is where things get tricky. Being static has to be compared by a not static being with another static being, for if one of the two hypothetically static beings wouldn't be static the other could be the not static being, for they are to be compared with each other to define whether or not they are or are not static in being.
Part 4Now the problem is this: both not being static there could possibly be a situation where both (hypothetically) static beings would appear static. This could be the case when there are no other (perceived) static beings around which would offer the opportunity of rearranging elements so that we could have a different static (or not) pair which could be compared to define whether or not both beings are static or not. This is an endless chain...
Ok, we're getting confused here. More on this later...
