We live in a world where forever is a dream. Reality is 99.9% of things we create, build fade, deteriorate over time and disappear. all human physical endeavor, inventions, systems, designs need constant replenishing of energy and constant up keep. our design point of departure is limited to fleeting inventions that deteriorate in this material world.
however human thought, design ideas can and do gain momentum, even once the originator, who penned , spoke or thought the original concept is long dead.
ideas are forever , ideas are perpetual, ideas grow and flourish with every new mind that they touch and inspire. they then exist in our collective mind space and therefore never ever grow old, they remain as fresh as when they where first conceived. so forever, is not just a dream, it is a reality.
