okay. i realize there is not much action taking place in this little station, yet here i post, once more. chronologically, we are brought to Anaximenes, but because his beliefs are somewhat similar to those of Thales', we will skip to another, Parmenides. Parmenides(540-480b.c.) believed that everything that exists, had always existed, and that actually change does not occur. we must not trust our sense, for we perceive that things change, but its a deception. he inquired "how can something become something that it is not?" if there is a soul alive out there, do you agree or not.
