No, not rock and roll and drugs!
More like yin and yang.
Hard and soft, fast and slow. The grass has a fast life, the rock a slow life. I know. Most of us think of the grass as alive, and the rock as not. An understandable misconception, though.
The rock lives its life very slowly, so incredibly slowly that we don’t, or can’t, notice it. And to be fair, mineral life is a very different kind of life, after all. Doesn’t meet the current scientific definition of life, but it does meet the understanding of many indigenous peoples.
So… hard and soft, fast and slow, vegetable and mineral — and humans to observe and ponder and try to figure it all out.
Fun, isn’t it?
