Seven Truths of Being

1. If you are not growing, you are dieing.
2. Growth means change.
3. Change requires input.
4. Input means consumption.
5. There is an upper and lower limits to healthy/productive consumption.
6. Waste is anything outside of the range of healthy/productive consumption.
7. Eventually the ability to process new input ends and therefore stops growing and dies.

 I will just toss this out there for now and let them diffuse into cyberspace. They really don't mean much, nor do they contain a moral imperative. They just are what they are and can be applied to just about everything that is.

I agree. It's like a longer version of what Morgan Freeman said in "The Shawshank Redemption". He said, "Get busy living, or get busy dying."

Michael, That sounds about right. Wisdom says the most in the least number of words; philosophy strives to say the least in the most number of words.
