Making sense...

There is nothing new under the sun. Even the thoughts which are new to me aren’t really new. Other people would have thought up those ideas long ago. Even now there could be a number of people having the same ideas. What then makes my thoughts special?

Is it the personal discovery of it? Perhaps.

What moves me to share those thoughts with others? Is it to see if there is anybody who would understand me and share my discovery with me? To see if there are others who think like me? Perhaps.

Perhaps we all seek to connect and understand and make sense. Perhaps, each of us brings different pieces of the jigsaw. Each of us puts out the pieces of puzzle that we hold helps us makes sense of the bigger. Perhaps that is why melding your thought with mine makes better sense.

The big picture, I suppose, is the same old, same old. However, discovering the varied different pieces, seeing it come together, and watching the meaningfulness emerge is new. It is brand new.

It's said there are no new ideas, only new ways of telling them. Can be frustrating for a fiction writer. :)

there is nothing new? well, it is a personal choice and way of looking, according to me.
personally, I think each day, each hour,each minute, each second is new, so different from all that passed and so different from all that yet to come...

Change in technology makes things possible. 1000 years ago "I want to fly" was meaningless. Today we have planes. Before each thought was in isolation, today we are buildign a new tower of bable and each thought builds into something greater than the parts.

Nothing is new except our experience of it. There is some excitement and fascination with that. I like hearing your thoughts, and I so enjoy the way technology brings me in contact with different, and like, perspectives.

There may be nothing new, but I think the wonder of the personal discovery and our joy in making it and hunger to share it point to the sanctity of life. It's exciting.

I read that Apple is offering unlocked iPhone 3GS? Is it true? I know you can buy unlocked iPhone from ebay for example, but can I buy the new iPhone 3GS unlocked from Apple? If so would you give me a link or a how to do it? Thanks!
