I am in no way to be compared to those great authors, so I only request a 
little     (03)

attention to the followig points:    (04)

To understand how "everything was started" physicist" went bakc in spacetime to 
the Bigbang. What was before is a matter of debate. To nderstand what goes on 
in     (05)

the mind we go back to babies and prehistoric men. before we learn to speak a 
language we seem to master some concepts. Looking back to a situation which is 
not proven yet we can assume that in the beginning we did not have one concept 
related to an articulated word, but when we had one, it could have had several 
functions and senses.    (06)

Thus projecting back what we have today in a single word form, such as change 
for     (07)

example, we have in WordNet a noun and a verb of the same form. In terms of 
concepts and logic however such a word means three conceptions, namely change 
is     (08)

an object made by man called concept. This object is at the same time a 
relation     (09)

between man, the observer or the doer (agent) represented by the verb change. 
Third, this word change is not just the result (product) of the verb change in 
the object (concept) change, but also a property called change opf that object. 
This last bit     (010)

needs some further clarification. You could say that the property form of 
change     (011)

should be changing or changed, but since time is not introduced here yet, 
accept     (012)

that many nouns (such as change) are used as adjectives with other nouns, hence 
as a property.     (013)

Besides, as soon as something is seen as property, it is almost automatic to 
see     (014)

it as an object.    (015)

Therefore check out a few other words and see how this triple nature of a 
single     (016)

word is revealed as object, property and relation in one package.     (017)

Try translation, creation, information, conception, etc.
The fact that the word format is not identical in all the three functions in 
other cases is not an issue.
A quote from B. Hamvas  relavant here: Whoever informs you will transform you.    (018)

It is important to see that the three components - object, property and 
do not exist without one another, although object has a greater autnomy than 
other two. They are fine to describe the world as conceived as spacetime.    (019)

But spacetime is not complete. The third constituent of reality besides 
spacetime is motion. Those three together are defined recursively by physicist.    (020)

As for the dynamic representation of reality with upper ontology priimitives 
object, property and relation is complete with change as the most generic verb, 
hence the most abstract (a misnomer). Check out in Physics what you get in 
observation of reality at subatomic level, how the philosophical version of 
wishful thinking is examplified.    (021)

But the main point is that integrating ontologies that are represented in 2D, 
any configuration in a surface will necesarily be short of depicting the time 
dimension, leaving us with the task of reading the nets, webs or lattices from 
either end, but not allowing us to see how the pattern is growing subject to 
mental operations performed in relations (through verbs).    (022)
