So, as we have been watching the purchases of badges go by we've noticed that no one is buying up these amazing little art-experiments that we happily yet accidentally devised while making badges for the masses. Are we seeing an uncertainty in the unknown or, worse, a fear of impermanence itself?
Either way, we hope it doesn't matter, as we serenade your eyes and minds with shots of these one-of-a-kind artistic expressions of change and transformation, juxtaposed with commentary and sutra on Anicca:
A corporeal phenomenon, a feeling, a perception, a mental formation, a consciousness, which is permanent and persistent, eternal and not subject to change, such a thing the wise men in this world do not recognize; and I also say that there is no such thing. - Buddha Shakyamuni
Whatever is subject to origination ("samudaya") is subject to cessation ("nirodha") - (MN 56)
Impermanent are all component things, They arise and cease, that is their nature: They come into being and pass away, Release from them is bliss supreme. - (DN 16)
There is no static being, no unchanging substratum. Change, movement, is Lord of the Universe. Everything is in a state of becoming, of continual flux. You cannot step twice into the same river; for fresh waters are ever flowing in upon you. - Heraclitus
