If you checkout/update your working copy, the current HEAD revision of the repository is brought to your local disk. This HEAD revision is now your local working BASE :)

If you change something locally, you create differences against BASE.

While you are working locally, other people may commit something to the repository, so the HEAD revision of the repository changes and is no longer the same as your local working BASE.

Got it? :)

In short terms HEAD=remote/repository, BASE=local/working copy. Sometimes HEAD=BASE ;)
