(p.129) Chapter 11 Circulation
Being and Motion

Thomas Nail

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that being flows and folds, but is also distributed by a field. Flows join into stable folds, and folds are conjoined into things, but things are also arranged or ordered together through a field of circulation. This is the third concept in the theory of motion. A field is a single continuous flow that has a kinetic vector for each period on its surface. If flows intersect and folds periodically cycle, fields organize them all in a continuous feedback loop. This chapter provides a kinetic theory of how conjoined flows become organized according to distinct regimes or fields of motion.
