Birth/death; joining/leaving; normal/not-normal; repetition/difference; doing/not-doing; general/unique – these are some of the dualisms that unify our consciousness because we are able to imagine and act.

In this mix, resilience is not defined by immortality or equilibrium or preservation or restoration or continuity or even discontinuity.
