Re: [BKARTS] Glue and Gelatin



progress is moving forward or to advance...

Right, but what is often taken as progress or forward movement is regressive in nature, in spite of the fact that a given culture calls it progress. In hindsight, one observes that so much more was lost than gained.

Vernon,

By definition, progress is moving forward or to advance. How can one
move
forward, backward, or advance in retreat? Whereas, to regress is to go
backward.
James said that progress can be in more than one direction, and I
wondered,
"What direction would that be?"
