I understand that argument. But then we have to account for the infinite
pluralities of times that are eternally co-present in that Platonia when
there is no way to break the stalemate of neutrality. Becoming is a better
candidate for the ontological ground since it includes potential at the
root, potential would be then the "fire" that breaks the symmetry that
would otherwise keep Platonia frozen stiff.
