Safe to Assume

it seems it's a realistic view of the world that imagines that everything outside of oneself is operating according to routine. after all, what are the odds that it should be at this very moment of your witnessing that it break from routine? But then, meanwhile, within oneself, each moment unfolds as none has before. every contributing factor is different from what it was and the moment and all those involved to witness it are completely new. and yet it remains much more realistic to assume that everything is always as it has been and everwill be. It will always be safe to assume this. Safe to assume. Is this the definition of that figure of speech? If you know which regularities to look out for you will spot them each time as they fly past and disappear again out of sight into the chaos.
