Well to be honest I love change, if things didn't change over time we would all experience a sort of endless looping event. That would get boring really quick, and there would be a great deal of more chaos involved with people & things bumping or colliding into one another or should I say resulting in conflicts of this over looping process. Change is in place and is a universal which has been rendered by our higher powers, on down to us all, & so we can view such a process and work with what we have to make eventual needed changes and or adjustments.
Not every change is for the good, or the greater good of us all & so I can see why he tended to steer towards the erosion of culture idea, as if ones culture most be keep and maintained. I think that culture is what we make of our outward reality, and is pretty much a self projection of what we interpret our world to be, as a form of self expression. So as time progresses & moves on, change also will follow and regardless of the level of resistance to it all. Actually the more resistant one is to change, the greater potential that will build up for it to actually occur. Just look at the universe as a whole.
Also you cannot stop the flow and direction of a Tsunami, a Wave, a Typhoon, a Cyclone, a Hurricane, a Tornado, a Supernova, a Black Hole, and the likes, and all these are naturally occurring and bring fourth rise to inevitable change or eventual erosion. These all have a long lasting effect on us all, and definitely can end one form of existence, to only make room for yet another, which our creator promises to continue such a universal activity if not any at all.
