Like A Rolling Stone - Dylan


Rolling Stones

Heraclitus is known for illustrating the persistence of unity through his words Ta panta rhei kai ouden menei "Everything flows, nothing stands still."i't means all things are constantly changing, constantly in flux, so there is no permanent subject of change. You cannot step into the same river twice. Everything changes and nothing remains .
Engels has confirmed again in Dialectic Of Nature" that the whole Nature has it's existence in eternal comming into being and passing away; in ceaseless flux; unresting motion and changes".

My problems is what is the words Changes itself; for me it's still relatives condition regardings the Observerselfs (primary concerned to time and space). As Sisyphus push the stone to rolling up the hills, the stone always on move and rolled no matter it move forwards or backwards it's steady on progress of Chages , but for garfields as the Observer who sleept and woke has only said that sisyphus just wasting his time since what he has saw the Sone is still there all the days.:-P

Behind all change is a mysterious intelligibility, the logos or meaning. If things are constantly changing, then nothing is knowlable in a rational way, only in a mysterious kind of intuition. His philosophy of change also taught that the conflict of opposites was a prinicple of reality. Conflict is the father of all things polemos pater panton. He argued that change is an illusion.

The senses may tell us that things change, but that only means that the senses deceive us, and sense knowledge is the way of fools. The intellect tells us that all that exists is being, and that being is not divided into being and non-being. Being is one and unchangin

Nope i't not about Blowin With The Winds but it seems near to Like A Rolling Stone rolled down and always on move.


Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And ask him do you want to make a deal?


You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal.


Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts and things
But you'd better lift your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.
