Form is formless

What can we say for certain?

Not much.

But then again, whatever your persuasion of life, we all know that everything changes.

As Bukowski said, you can see it in the slow hands of a clock.

What does that mean apropos the forms we apparently see and/or experience?

They're not real, perhaps.

Indeed, even the most immutable — i.e. a large mountain range — will, eventually, move on to something else.

I accept that this sort of airy-fairy language is not resonant with our ordinary, everyday existence — e.g. going to work, paying the bills and dealing with the ups and downs of life — but then again, so much of what we talk about and experience is premised on apprehending something that cannot be properly or accurately described.
