The Slow Riddle


Question

Over time some things may change,

Whilst all the others remain the same.

A mountain standing as steady as can be,

Only seems unmoving to you and me.

Things not at first readily seen,

You may upon closer inspection glean.

The words will sometimes lie,

But on numbers you can always count by.

If this may tend toward the awkward at times,

It's not due to difficulty trying to rhyme.

As usual, don't go about this the usual way,

B/c by not the usual rules can I play.

Albeit this creation was indeed very tedious to make,

May solving it by comparison only be a piece of cake,

What am I?

I'll guess at a couple of couplets

The words will sometimes lie,


But on numbers you can always count by.

I'll guess I, the symbol for the Imaginary Numbers set
(I think N, the Natural Numbers could also be a good guess)

As usual, don't go about this the usual way,


B/c by not the usual rules can I play.

I'm going to pretend it's really B*c and guess 'v'

Are either of these even on the right track?

Clever interpretation, lol...I totally love the last one :D. But actually, there's only one device for the entire riddle, that's the same for each couplet, and like the other riddles in the series, it doesn't require any guessing ;).
