Why Resist the New?

One Overheard Comment
Number Two Thousand Six Hundred and Something-Or-Other:
“Hey, you can bad-mouth ‘em all you want to, but just remember,
without local conditions there wouldn’t be any local.”

 

Near an abandoned campfire, just upon that east ridge,
a scrap of paper was recently found which said,
“The Secret is to act like you actually know what you’re…”
(The note was unfortunately torn just there.)

 

Why resist the new?
It’ll just run over you anyway.

 

Any story without an internal point of “self reference” is a tale hardly worth telling,
much less remembering, forgetting or otherwise folding and consuming.

 

Continuing the charade,
is part of the charade.

 

Only two classes of people properly believe in the duality of reality:
those under five foot nine,
and those taller.
