Perhaps one of the main distinctions between philosophy and poetry is that with the former we perceive the world through thought, while with the latter our thoughts come from the perception of the world.
There is no such thing as people remaining the same. Everyone grows age-wise, but not every one does intellectually, emotionally, creatively and/or artistically. So there is change, just not always a favorable one. This relates to what might be called proportional change.
I believe we should understand art from this same perspective, as something that will inevitably grow age-wise (for the artist or for history). But if art doesn't grow in the other above-mentioned ways, then it will be an impoverished art.
In this sense, change or growth should not be understood in relation to progress, but in terms of a broad sense of experience.

Besides making music, I also like to write (and not only about it).
