This chapter argues that being flows, but it also folds. Being flows, but it also folds over itself in habitual cycles and patterns of dynamic equilibrium, creating regional stabilities-in-motion. A fold is produced by the junction or intersection of a flow with itself. It is like an eddy or whirlpool in the flows of being. If we begin philosophy from discontinuity and stasis, the challenge is to theorize movement. However, if we begin philosophy from the primacy of movement, the challenge is to theorize stability. This chapter provides a kinetic theory of how folds emerge from flows through junctions and conjoin with one another to produce larger composites or conjunctions.
