An Old and New Topic

Our lives are constant blends of old with new. That's almost one definition of 'time' — old days / new days. We all own some old things and some new things.  New things become old things. We can acquire some old things and thereby make them new things, for us. We moved from our old house to our new house, bringing some old things and buying some new things. The old year became the new year, looking quite the same, except our old view is now a new view. The old computer became a new computer, looking much like the old one, but behaving in a new way. I've finished some old projects and begun some new.

Old and New are simultaneous. 

Where does one begin and the other end?

Lovely thoughts to contemplate. ~ Annie

Good question, Thom. As I once theorised, perhaps there is no past (old) and no future (new) - just one big 'now' (current). That's a bit 'airy-fairy' perhaps, but you get the idea.

Hi Annie! Ah yes, contemplation is an act of new thoughts about old subjects.

Hi Kid!

I know that portions of this subject are near and dear to your cogitations, as they are to mine. We need to talk theory some fine day.
