Here’s an ontology for you: the cosmos is a continuing abundant, interactive, integrative flow of everything through time. That is its beingness. It’s so powerfully true that you can’t stop it from flowing. This was identified in the rig veda by the much wiser and much more scientifically disciplined sages of that time, and from which we have devolved.
This fact has elsewhere been identified as the cycle of action of the physical universe. There are within that macrocosmic reality many cycles that reflect it, and the component parts of those flows/cycles are start, change and stop. If economists would study this cycle with an eye to where it stops they might have a very powerful cognition.
