Every part of me then will be reduced by change into some part of the universe, and that again will change into another part of the universe, and so on forever. - Marcus Aurelius

One of my favorite Youtube channels is Like Stories of OldIn these videos Tom van der Linden imparts his own, or ancient, philosophy in essays that use movies as a video accompaniment and to give life to the thoughts he's expressing.  Every one is interesting in some way.  The two I'm sharing here are because I found a nice harmony with the image above which I've tied to a Marcus Aurelius quote from the Shawshank video.   The image is of some running rust on the side of a train car found at the Southwest Train Museum in Campo, CA.  Forever changing and returning to the universe.

Thanks for introducing this channel. I really enjoyed the Gladiator episode. It was already one of my favorite films, and this provided further depth to think about.
