Streik (-holz) (Match)


The match is an allegorical tool for thinking about something being started and the beginning of a short time in which something else is subsequently or subsequently not started.

The match strike can set in motion something greater and enduring than itself.

In the same way, small changes in the provision of blood/oxygen to cells in the brain (a stroke) can create changes in the universe much greater and enduring than themselves.

In the case of a stroke there is usually a rough, 4.5-hour window of opportunity from the onset of neurological symptoms to prevent any subsequent, greater and enduring effect on the universe, provided the drug tPA can be administered.
