What is the Meaning of "Is"?

Written by Clark Woolley

By definition, non-being ("is not") cannot exist or non-being exists ("is") and, therefore, cannot be non-being.

Nothing lasts. Everything ceases to be.

See short video end of article.

Follow up:

Non-being is inherent in being because every-thing is ultimately no-thing.

The destruction of a thing is the creation of another thing (or things), and visa versa, that is, the creation of a thing is the destruction of another thing.

In the process of destruction and creation, every-thing becomes no-thing, and this no-thing is another thing(s).

In this sense, everything comes from nothing.

Being and non-being are one, being/non-being.

Existence is the process of being/non-being. All reality is process.

No-thing exists. Nothing exists.

Nothing "is".

Therefore, is isn't.
