Re: Why does one resist/reject change?
Change does seem to underlie existence, yes, but, if we were to take change and resistance as opposing forces, then, I would understand that resistance as a temporary concentration of force, perceived as form, that can be undone by change.
If it (resistance) were absolute, there would be no change, and everything would be static. Equally if change were absolute, we could expect nothing to form.
Since both of these possibilities do not appear to be the case, and, will probably never be the case, there is no good reason to say, something like, change is what will always be there, but not resistance.
That is denying an aspect of reality, it is to be, a chaos, or death, worshipper.
In reality both are present.
It is important to note that resistance is occurring on many different levels, there is no reason to limit it to one form, that is, conscious resistance (which is anything but futile, it is a sophistication).
The idea that resistance is futile, seems to be, a sort of, exaggerated focus, perhaps, arising out of stress, of having a direct perception of one's own inevitable failure of resistance in the future, or the failure to resist in the past...
