Existence subsists on constant transformation. Without the movements that provide change, our being would be a still-life, and we condemned to stay forever in that one particular moment.
Whether we appreciate it or not, the concept of time prevents us from such a standstill. Therefore, we continuously develop due to our actions and provoked reactions. What we do today, changes the tomorrow, and eventually, this leads to a transformation.
As things change, we need space for these innovations. However, too often, the old turns out to be too small for the newly formed demands. Hence, they slip away from us over time and slowly dissolve until they seem to provide no more significance.
Over time, these ruins accumulate and pave the way for everybody’s past. Though it was their peak that led to the transformation, it is easy to forget that they once took center stage before the better present.
