Time/Development/Change/Movement/World/Universe/Leibniz: from the notion that all predicates are contained in the subject, and from the fact that not all predicates are compatible with each other and further from this that all possibility strives to exist, it follows that the universe is developing.
"It follows further that at any time in the soul of Alexander, there were remnants of what has happened to him and signs of what would still happen to him, and even traces of all that happens in the universe, even though it is only God to recognize this."_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
