Change/changing/event/Lewis: Not all events involve change. We cannot afford to count the constancies (Nonchanges) as non-events. - They are needed in the causal explanation. - E.g. atomic decay: abrupt change, consists of constancies. - The causal story that explains the decay is without changes. - Constancy: is needed to explain the memory, perception, existence in time ((s) co-existence). - Lewis: the terminology is not critical again.
