Quote from: Kiahanie on June 22, 2021, 01:27:15 AMOne of the first postulates gives me pause: "Nothing exists prior to itself" depends on a particular atomistic ontological perspective. I look at it different. Things are processes, and in interacting with other processes become something else. Becoming is the natural state of being.To speak of "prior to itself" is to speak of the history of this thing becoming whatever it is, of endless processes culminating in this moment which is surpassed again by becoming. The point at which a thing is said to "exist" becomes very arbitrary.
