This is just a stub; I will fill this essay in when I have clarified my thoughts on this topic.
A dichotomy is commonly perceived between stasis (existence) and process (activity). I would like to point out that although it is generally held that
Thus, existence and change are two equal observations on the same system; existence is not more fundamental than change.
Something of particular interest to me is the existence (and reification) of process as an entity: what is a process or activity, and how can you represent it as a thing... not as a series of snapshots of its progress, nor as a formula for how it is to procede, but the ``live'' activity itself?
This is of interest to me in two ways: in Computer Science, to examine, reason about and modify a process (in the sense of a running program) you need to be able to represent the process (my PhD was largely concerned with this); and philosophically, it may be a useful support for arguing about consciousness.
