“Look in the mirror. Day after day, year after year, there’s hardly any change at all. That’s you: wrinkles, gray hair, what the hell – you can see it’s you. And yet, every bone, every muscle, every patch of skin, tendon, blood vessel – every single particle – is being destroyed and replaced right as you look. Surface calm – mad scramble of activity underneath. The shape, the form, the pattern – all unchanged and yet not one single molecule of what was you seven years ago is a part of you now.” – Theory of War, Joan Brady
