In Buddhism, there is no such thing as permanence.
No entity has an independent existence.
Even ideas evolve over a period of time.
What we think or feel changes over time.
In this context, consider happiness or virtue, love or creativity, or the good things in life. Are they not subject to DO (dependent origination) and therefore have no intrinsic worth?
Consider happiness, for example. It does NOT exist as a permanent, unchanging entity somewhere that we can go and grasp. It is the result of various conditions. When those conditions are fulfilled, we are happy. If not, we are unhappy.
So wouldn't DO/impermanence render our search futile?
