Constitution – A Living or Breathing Document?

Some people (citizens, judges and politicians for example) consider the U.S. Constitution a ‘living, breathing document!’ How can that be?

It looks like a piece of paper to me with a charter on it to the citizens. I don’t see how it can be interpreted as a ‘living, breathing document’ unless, of course, someone wants it to expand, progress or morph into something else other than what it was intended for. And, when that happens, does the promise or charter provided therein not become subject to interpretations for which they were never intended?
