  1. There are the theories of change – everything changes always – we need to reconcile the fact that our mortality is not what it seems – during the course of our lives our cells regenerate following the pattern of our DNA about every 7 years. In a sense we are just wave of cells moving through time until our replication starts to fail – it follows that there should be a focus in our lives on us shaping those cells to be more effective thinkers by assisting them to unite in more a more complex manner by exercising our minds and our bodies. In this theory the only constant in our life is change

    There are the theories of uncertainty – after all it is the only certainty that exists .

    It behoves us to embrace our natures and to celebrate our wonderful fluid existence of freedom to change for the better!
