"but the voice of life, the voice of Being, of perpetual Becoming."

Early Greek philosophers conceived being as objects and becoming as change, and viewed becoming as cyclical-driven modulation of objects.

Heraclitus considered that everything was in a state of flux caused by "becoming" itself was the first principle, and if becoming would cease, then all things, including being, would cease. The process of becoming can be compared to Fire, the element that is unstable nature but has the capacity to bring about change.
