Is it an oxymoron to be fixated on impermanence?

“In today’s world, it is increasingly difficult for any institution- religions, universities, newspapers, manufacturers, or even music genres like punk rock- to cling too stubbornly to absolutist principles of what “should be.” The changes that dictate “what is”- including the creative combinations that come from vastly enhanced social networks- are occurring with blinding speed. It may seem impossible to keep up with all the changes, but I find it is difficult only if you insist on a static worldview. Once you embrace the dynamism inherent in an increasingly connected world, the changes are not as worrisome.”
