Impermanence (Anicca)

Ancient Greek philosopher Parmenides claimed that being is eternal, that it doesn’t move or change. Zenon with his paradoxes tried to help him in proving his theory. But the Ancient Greeks did not know the true nature of infinity. Today we mostly agree, as Buddhist did, with Heraclitus when he argued just the opposite – that everything is in a perpetual stage of constant change and therefore it’s illusive, out of our grasp.

But even illusive human suffering is something that is real and that should vanish from our lives.
