Robert Anton Wilson - TSOG Maybe

Robert Anton Wilson - TSOG Maybe

From the vid info: Perhaps instead of thinking of things changing, it may be more accurate to think of change as 'thinging'. Change 'thinging' in a process-oriented universe. The universe we are living in today is not the same universe we were living in yesterday. Scenario Universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events. I seem to be a verb. I have never met a noun.

What gives primordial single-celled organisms the incentive to meet with other cells over time to eventually become whole communities of cells that build up homeostatic, fully functional organisms that can contemplate these things and anything more?

Is that an accomplishment or is the very idea of success subjective too? Personally, I am impressed. :)
