Constants, philosophy, logic: constants are conditions which do not change, in contrast to processes, states, and also natural objects, e.g. aging. An aging human being remains constantly the same person, but not the same body. For a constant, e.g. a name for an object is given. Letters of logic are given for individual constants (a, b, c ...), but also for individual variables (x, y, z ...). Variables are not changing objects, but a new object may be used instead of a variable, e.g. 4 instead of 5. These two numbers, however, are not changing objects, but have a constant value.
