kkwan,
This is expressed in process philosophy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_philosophy

“In opposition to the classical model of change as purely accidental and illusory (as by Aristotle), process philosophy regards change as the cornerstone of reality–the cornerstone of the Being thought as Becoming”.


This reminds me of David Bohm’s philosophy.

“Process philosophy”, it seems to me, is just ordinary philosophy with weaker identity conditions: more things count as “processes” than as traditionally understood “things”. E.g., there’s the “process” of warming temperatures as well as the “process” of being President Obama.

Ugh, I didn’t know what “process” philosophy was until Doug explained it.  I was happy in my ignorance; now I’m annoyed by the silliness of it.  Thanks, Doug.  sick  LOL
