There are things that are and things that do. Though at Planck-unit scales the distinction vanishes in the splish, splash, splosh of the quantum foam. This post highlights the parallels between items in column 3 (things that do) with their respective counterparts in column 2 (things that are). To illustrate: Flesh is to spirit as matter is to energy as brain is to mind, etc. With a stretch, most of the items in column 3 "run on" the respective items in column 2. Software runs on hardware. Agency runs on consciousness. Processes run on substrates: material, virtual or otherwise. Verbs need nouns to run. Does the soul run on the body? The mind on the brain? Energy on matter? Mmmm: good questions. Let me know when you find out.
