What is around us is a constant process of unfolding in its universal aspect; the past terms are there, contained in it, fulfilled, overpassed, but in general and in various type still repeated as a support and background; the present terms are there not as unprofitable recurrence, but in active, pregnant gestation of all that is yet to be unfolded by the spirit: no irrational decimal recurrence, helplessly repeating forever its figures, but an expanding series of powers of the Infinite.

This is surely the Will in things which moves, great and deliberate, unhasting, unresting through whatever cycles, towards a greater and greater informing of its own figures with its own infinite reality.

Sri Aurobindo
