In sum, the contemplation about the meanings of the terms continuant and
occurrent is a matter of how these are mapped to the basic ontology,
which is the conception of a single time line where time t is before
time t+1. There's the fundamental necessary ontology that everyone should
acknowledge, for everyone relies on it implicitly in any case, even if
one would not admit this.    (04)
