Nothing is permanent; all is flux.
Heraclitus has said that you cannot step
into the same river twice,
because the river has flowed on;
everything has changed.
And not only has the river flowed on,
you have also flowed on.

We think of our separate selves as permanent things,
as if viewing a river from a distance, but this is a misperception
- in reality, the ego self is merely an ever-changing stream
of impressions.
