Chapter 24. Changes in life.
Today is the 1st of December. The beginning of the new month and the new season. The life is being changed.
The weather is changing. Instead of rain and mud we had month ago when I started my blogging, at the moment we have snow and ice (though sleet has remained :) ) We have to change our wardrobe. From today we have bus tickets price increased. A sad change. Not the only one. The trade center I wrote about three weeks ago is about to be closed.
The surrounding world inevitably varies. How do you mostly treat it, positively or negatively? How do you cope with it? Try to adapt yourself or not? Of course, life without changes is boring. When my life remains still for a significant period I provoke some disturbance of space around me. Instant change of an environment forces organisms to improve itselves. (If you believe the Darvin theory :) ) On the other hand expecting negative changes causes stress and other psychological diseases. Do you suffer this? Sometimes I do. And it's the hardest thing to resist to. I wonder if there is some technics to neutralize negative thoughts.
It seems that common vector of changes throughout the whole human history is positive. A standard of living has improved dramatically since the time when our ancestors depicted mammothes on the walls of their caves. Practically, we now have not to fight for food and for safe life. Most of our time we spend for communication and what is especially wonderfull we can communicate with all over the world. On the other hand science fiction writers predict the technological disaster as a result of the progress. Do you agree with them? I don't. But there is a nuance. For instance, the situation like those described in 'The Matrix' movie, when the vast majority of humans lives in the Matrix, I tend to consider as a positive result of the evolution. If there would be the choice for me I would choose the blue pill. :) What do you think about all this?
And there one more change we are all expecting now. Tomorrow I'm going to write my last blog and the next week we'll see the new portrait at the blog header. I hope this change won't be sad.:)
