According to Herakleitos, you must have!

'Pante rei'

Contemplative series indeed...
Yes, you spotted it. The only constant is change. (Only one of the interpretations) You can´t step into the same river twice.

Funny thing. There are some boats in this country called "Panta rei" It´s the double meaning of "Allt flyter" (Panta rei);

"Everything floats" or "Anything floats". The name is mostly given to not so sea worthy vessels that barely manage not to sink or by captains with

1) at least some knowledge about Herakleitos, and

2) foremost humour

Really untranslateable. Don´know how it is in english really. Would it be funny in turkish? To name a boat/ship "Panta rei", I mean

Themeaning of 'pante rei' everything flows shifting to anything floatsmade me laugh as an example of good sense of humour! I'd most probably take that boat:G

Ah, here 'panta rei' would make a perfect name for a blue voyage boat http://www.turizm.net/bluecruise/how.html

As you understood, in my language the word "flyter" has two meanings.

Its so cold up here that you economize with the words. There is nothing like a good laugh - oh yes - another good laugh (first rule of logics A=A) Ha ha

So that means that the blue boats really have a future
