Dynamic Structures

The act of knowing (as described before) is central and fundamental and has impacts on everything based upon it. It affects the structure of knowledge, making it fundamentally dynamic.

So, what does this mean? Is there no stable structure at all?

Well, initially it says that the elements of every structure emerge from activity and actually are activity, in their deepest inside, as one might say.

Yet, we have found out some more, namely that there is also always a spatial structural component, such as a net of relations and a field of tension. Thus we can redescribe the act of knowing so that a spatial structure concentrates and reduces to one thing.

This thing is a thing only because it represents a repeatedly observable regularity, that is, because it muliplies. So it constitutes a particular structure of its own, established by its appearances. Seen in this light, the central act of knowledge is the passing from one structure to another.

Hence activity is not only enclosed in the elements that form the structures of knowledge, but the deformations and reorganisations of the structures themselves are in effect the same activity.

The very essential parts of knowledge-structures, their true elements, are their alterations!
