Daily Dharma

A stable, solid body is a mental image superimposed onto a stream of events in the same way that a spinning propeller is seen as a circle. The constant succession of discrete acts of cognition or feeling appears as a monolithic event, just as the rapid change of frames in a film appears as a smooth continuum.  
– The Dalai Lama and Thubten Chodron, “An Unbroken Sequence”
