Remaining unchanged.

The German philosopher Hegel defined this term as permanent equilibrium. Absolute stasis in the universe, it is not possible to remain unchanged. There are only equilibria that more or less last, which is not a question of structure but of degree. For example, even the most stable-looking mountain tops were not where they were once, and will not be where they were after a while; Since they change very slowly according to human measures, they are in a static appearance, whereas they are constantly wearing out and changing. With a thought coming from the great thinker of antiquity, Heraclitus, according to both Hegel and dialectical materialism, what is real is motion, nothing but a static abstraction.

The obligatory and important conclusion that follows from this is that there is no stasis in the universe, so that how a stasis starts to move in the beginning is put forward as a problem. So this problem that philosophy has been dealing with for ages is a false problem. The term dural should not be confused with the term static (Os. Constant) meaning unaltered. This is also an immobility, but only a mechanical immobility in the sense of displacement, according to the metaphysical understanding, what is displaced does not change itself. This understanding is the necessary consequence of the immutability principle of metaphysics; whereas displacement is one thing, change is another. Displacement is one of the myriad forms of change.
