  1. For whom as. For a mentally healthy person, yes. The brain needs to update its impressions, and a continuous “Groundhog day” can provoke big psychological (and then somatic) problems.

    For mentally ill people (this includes patients with depression) – in different ways. There are diseases in which everything is the same as in the average norm. There are – when a small change will cause severe discomfort. “No news – good news” is just a saying about such cases.

    And, of course, it is important to clarify two things. First: change is in the context of this question-what? Should I wear a new color of socks every day or change my wife / husband every three years? What do we run ourselves? Or something that happens without our knowledge, by itself?

    Second: the number of changes per unit of time. Each of us has our own reserve of adaptability. It depends on a number of innate characteristics of a person, on upbringing and life experience, and on the specific situation. If there are a lot of changes, and they go in a continuous stream, then not everyone will be able to quickly adapt to each new introduction.

  2. Actually, change is death and rebirth. And life without change is simply NOT Life. But there are also changes of the children's type – running up to the top to decide, fascinated-disappointed, superficiality, and there are changes-expansion in knowledge. The first will pull on DOES NOT Live. The second is on dying and being reborn.

  3. From a philosophical point of view, life without change is eternal life. If nothing changes, then nothing dies and nothing is born, everything remains unchanged. Groundhog Day concluded in a moment.�

    From the point of view of an ordinary person, this is stability. It can be either consistently good or consistently bad.

    And from the point of view of science, a world without changes does not exist – everything moves and changes constantly.

  4. We come to this world to learn, to learn, to improve and this speaks for itself, it is natural to change. We change every minute and every second. “Who is beaten by life, he will achieve more, Who ate a pound of salt higher values honey. Who shed tears, he laughs sincerely. Who died, he knows that he lives!” With respect.

  5. First, make sure that you live. As you understand, this is life, not death. You were told and you believed. Try to check for yourself if this is the case, and the answer will automatically appear on your question.

  6. Life in its purest form cannot be without changes. Another thing is how much they are coordinated. Life in love, in harmony, in peace and harmony contains a minimum of shocks that break the usual foundations, ponitie about happiness. Nevertheless, such a life is very desirable for many and is not boring at all, but is filled with the main values.
    There are people who are very temperamental, energetic, constantly looking for new things in the world and in themselves. They quickly achieve success and feel the thrill of what they have achieved, give up everything and rush with the same passion and energy into something completely different, discovering themselves and their new opportunities.
    All people are different, everyone needs their own. It's not about changes, it's about the taste of life. As long as it exists, a person will live.

  7. Life cannot be without changes. These can be subtle changes, or occur very gradually, over time. For better or worse. But they are always there. But I understand what you meant by asking the question. Most likely, you mean stagnation, a stop in development. Since it is impossible to stand still, the lack of upward movement always means downward movement, stagnation, degradation. Death awaits both of them)

  8. Death is the opposite of life. In the Bible, death is the enemy, it is broken.

    “The last enemy to be destroyed is death” (1 Corinthians 15: 26)

    There will be a resurrection of the dead and eternal life!

  9. The Vishnu Purana, which was written down five thousand years ago, says the following about this: “Traditions must change, be tested by time, circumstances and changing thinking, otherwise they become just customs. But not only do they become conventional and rigid, they can even hinder the development of humanity (The traditions of one generation can cause misery in another). Principles must be flexible, you cannot live your life with the same set of principles, life is multi-colored and in different circumstances a person should choose different paths. What is the biggest obstacle to the development of humanity? This is the condition when a person does not want to leave his usual path and go forward, when he is afraid to accept new ideas. Humanity must eventually understand that there is only one thing that remains eternal. And only it is immortal and boundless, and it is called-change. Only the change is permanent. Because change is the only secret to human development.”
    If a person and humanity as a whole did not change, then once a person stumbled, he would become a sinner for life. Oscar Wilde once said, ” Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.” We need to change and get better. This is our chance not just to exist, but to really live.
    For some people, life without change is like death, and for others, life changes are like death. And for others, life with or without changes is like death. There is an Indian parable that describes this moment. Once upon a time, a wise man met a non-pious king and said that it was better for him to never die. Later, the sage met a novice and advised him to die immediately. Later, he saw the butcher, and said that it was better not to live and not to die. Then the sage saw a man who was devoted to God and said, ” You can live or you can die, there is no difference for you.”
    It is better for a non-godly king not to die, as he is now enjoying and abusing power and wealth. He accepts one-sixth of the pious and one-sixth of the sinful karma of the people He rules. And after death, he will go to hell for his sins. It is better for a novice to die now, because he has now accumulated piety, but he may break the vow of chastity, and if he succumbs to feelings, he will become degraded. The butcher had better not live or die, as he is already living like hell. He kills animals, and this slaughterhouse is not inferior to the scenery of hell. And after death, he will go to an even greater hell. A person who faithfully serves God will enjoy both life and death, because now and even after death, he will continue to serve God.
    If you are a saint, then life without changes is good for you, because every day is a holiday. If your life is boring and squalid, then changes will enliven your life. If you are a sinner, then change and become a human being. All people can change! I know you can!

  10. Life without change is existence. Views are subjective, someone is satisfied with it, others on the contrary can not sit still. The changes are also different. Today you are happy, tomorrow you are destroyed, but in any case, “no change” means monotonous. Be yourself. Time is short

  11. Hello, Alexander.

    Death is death. This is not to be confused with anything else. Especially for those who then organize funerals. Everything that happens up to this point is Life. It can be different. It can only take place on the couch. It may be that a person does not have enough 24 hours in a day for everything planned.

    Your question concerns only the quality of life. Efficiency of movement to the goal, if any. And there will always be changes. Small, large ones. Visible, invisible. conscious, unconscious. It is important that they are directed by the person himself in the right direction. To increase efficiency in the process of achieving their goals. Any of them.

  12. Yes. Life is a movement. But on the other hand, if the changes are more than a certain acceptable level, or they are too steep, then this is also death. If you stand still , you won't get anywhere. But if you drive without brakes, there is a high probability that you will crash.
    Death is extreme.

  13. Life as a flow, as a state of constant change-invention (post/late)modernity.�

    Modernity has formed a fundamentally new concept of unstable, constantly changing relativity. If the human world of traditional society is stable, its position is clearly fixed and understandable, then in the process of building capitalism in the 19th and 20th centuries, a new reality was formed in the industrialized countries, which the great modern sociologist Sigmund Bauman called “Liquid modernity”. In this new reality, you can't learn to be a shoemaker or a bank clerk like you used to, and then spend your whole life mending shoes or rearranging paperwork in the office. In a post-industrial economy, however, a person is constantly forced to learn, master new competencies, and generally spin like a squirrel in a wheel.Life is no longer divided into periods as it used to be: first a person learns, then, having learned, works. Studying now lasts a lifetime, because any profession can simply die right before our eyes, and even any traditional activity requires mastering more and more new competencies.As a result, social reality is transformed from a solid surface into a turbulent flow.

    In addition, in the second half of the 20th century, people feel less and less part of a certain social whole and more and more turn into an isolated grain of sand against the background of the increasingly complex and very rapidly changing reality of consumer society. All that he has is himself and only on himself he can count by and large.�

    At the same time, consumption is not limited to simple purchasing activity: the whole reality becomes an object of consumption, it requires more and more new impressions.�

    Self-identification itself becomes floating. there are such concepts as protean self (Proteus is the son of Poseidon, who can change his appearance) or freestyle self, first used by Pasi Falk and Colin Campbell in the context of the modern buyer's experience: “flaneur = buyer = (post)modern self “and later very accurately quoted by Mike Featherstone in the article “Flaneur, the city and virtual public life”. If in Falk and Campbell the flaneur walks through shopping malls, in Featherstone he is already a consumer of experiences. By constructing his own self, ” he / she moves between attachment and alienation, sensation and knowledge.”

    Among sociologists who adhere to the concept of “reflective modernity”, including Ulrich Beck, Anthony Giddens, Scott Lash, and others, the” risk society “(Bec) is primarily concerned with the need for meaningful and organized life planning, in which” Self-Identity “becomes a reflexively organized effort” (Giddens).

    The same Bauman describes this “brave new world”as follows::

    “The passengers of the ship” heavy capitalism ” believed (though not always far-sighted) that individual crew members, who were given the right to climb on the captain's bridge, would lead the ship to its destination. Passengers could pay full attention to learning and following the rules written in bold letters that hung in each aisle. If they grumbled (or sometimes even rebelled), the anger was directed at the captain for not steering the ship fast enough or, in exceptional cases, neglecting the comfort of the passengers. The passengers of the “light of capitalism”, in contrast, to my horror found that the cockpit is empty and that there is no way to get the mysterious black box that says “autopilot” of information, where the plane is flying, which is going to land, who chooses the airport and are there any rules that allow passengers to ensure a safe landing”.

    But culture has created a complex system of justifying this state of affairs. A new social mythology appears, most clearly manifested at the level of mass culture in existential-humanistic psychology (and even earlier in philosophical anthropology and existentialism). Man is proclaimed to be a being who must (indeed must) constantly construct himself, who is actually a man only because he must constantly make a certain choice. The concept of self-development and “self-actualization” (Maslow) is formed. A person no longer just lives quietly for himself, his life is now spent in “searching for meaning” (Frankl), etc.�

    Well, here it is:

    If we are talking about how to survive: yes, of course, where are we now without changes?! You just need to be able to adapt to them just to survive.

    If we talk about change as a kind of super-idea, about self-development and other psychological nonsense, then we must understand that this is just an ideology aimed at adapting the average person to the world around them.

  14. Life cannot be without changes. Life is a movement, which means constant change, every day, every second. Death is also a change, also a movement, only in the opposite direction, towards emptiness. But when the void/vacuum/zero comes, then there will be no change.
