This chapter begins Part IV by offering a purely kinomenological theory of the elastic motions that define the appearance of being as time. Time, like space, eternity, and force, is an ontological description structured according a specific regime of motion. Part IV argues that the concept of time is a fundamentally kinetic concept. With some exceptions, almost all modern ontologies of the eighteenth through twentieth centuries, in one way or another, accept the reality and foundational nature of time. The thesis of this chapter is that temporal being is defined by a material and kinetic elasticity of motion. This elastic pattern of motion is defined by seriality, subjectivity, and elastic subjectivity.
