Something Eligible

April 21, 2005

Everything with a form and shape falls into the trinity of cre-
ation, sustenance, and dissolution. These three states are
inevitable and they materialize in time-space. Each manifes-
tation is a child of its age; it uses the concepts, structures, and
ways of the current relative reality. It has a limited existence
and relevance as well. Nothing lasts forever in time-space.

It is a poor representation and characterization when
something that has no shape or form has to be presented in
static and descriptive terms that automatically limit its
dynamic nature (i.e., real essence) to abstraction. This relative
manifestation is bound to its surroundings and can be inter-
preted only in its original environment and nature (also in

This means that any attempt that tries to capture some-
thing beyond time-space limitations is doomed to fail. At
best, we are capable of providing approximations that observe
only a part of the concept in question—never the entire con-
cept itself.

A metaphor to illustrate the point: filming a live event can
only capture a part of the real action, not the smell, atmos-
phere, and other parts of the live event itself that took place.
More importantly, filming cannot reproduce the actual activ-
ity—it can only describe and capture a limited part of it (i.e.,
some of the visual aspects).

The relevance is that we stick to these representations and
give them meanings they originally never had. They start to
live a life of their own. They do not compare with the actual
essence they were used to represent. A replica never becomes
better; it does not exceed the original.
How about we stop chasing the shadows and focus on the
source instead?
