a quantity or function that may assume any given value or set of values
When looking at a math problem with too many variables,
a constant must be found before any attempt at solving the equation can be made.
That said, when looking at society with its changing set of values or lack there of,
what constant is there to be found?
There was a time when faith served as a foundation, with stability framed by constancy.
This vital part of society's equation has been substituted for a series of variables.
Finding a solution to a problem requires a constant - a basis of truth from which to make sense of all other things.
In an ever changing world, we must seek out a source for constancy,
as it's vital for resurrecting sensibility in a society of variables.
