Perhaps I ought to be more clear. If one attempts to say what being is, as opposed to what or how a process becomes, if one attempts to determine what is being not in the abstract but in its most general and complete form, Ione finds that there is nothing graspable. In truth, it is nothing that comes to mind in a thought without predication. And the "that it is there" says little or nothing. There is no thing or process, no coming that is there.
So, when one seeks after an understanding of being, they find what becomes, and for some time they must be satisfied with history, with happenstance...for a time at least.
