Toward a radical middle

a time for fear
Thursday, May 15, 2003  
One of the things that amazes me is that the Himalayas - which people think of as the paradigm of the stable - are still moving up to one millimeter a year because India is still clashing with Central Asia. They're a ripple in the surface of the Earth. We cannot conceive of a clash that would last millions of years - our time frame is too limited. Imagine an observer with a time-scale so large that he could see this clash. He wouldn't even see us. Species to him would seem like vast amounts of bio-mass in constant change. He would see evolution. Everything that matters to evolution happens across Millennia. That observer would see species mutating and flowing. He would probably worship flows - unlike us, who, because of our very, very tiny time-scale of observation, tend to worship rocks.
