  1. I.J. Thompson, Philosophy of Nature and Quantum Reality, Pleasanton CA: Eagle Pearl Press, 2010.
    This book, written in 1993, develops a first-principles ontology for processes with only one generative level, and hence very simple compared with the multilevel structures here. It does, however, include a detailed description of the relations between potentiality and actuality, extensiveness and space, and how ‘being’ remains constant during changes.
