A simple yet plausible theory of persistence is the Persistence of Perm. This theory does not require any temporal parts and is mereologically simple. Here are a few examples of its main arguments. We’ll look at the location argument, the shrinking chair argument, and the invariance argument. The following argument is particularly compelling. It posits that perm and time can be indistinguishable, which contradicts the argument of the shrinking chair.
Persistence of perm is mereologically simple
The basic principle of the endurantist view of time and persistence is that objects are always present at the same moment in their existence. Thus, the existence of many building-like objects is wholly coincident. The endurantist view is more complicated, but it has some merits. This view has two main strands, one being more naturalistic and the other more positivist. Its central claim is that all objects are permanently present and the other akin to temporary coincidence.
It does not require temporal parts
The traditional argument against perdurantism is that the perm is unintelligible. In this article, we discuss some of the traditional arguments against perdurantism and how they relate to the concept of temporal parts. We conclude that the traditional argument against perdurantism fails to provide a compelling answer to the question of temporal parts. Let us consider the argument from mereology. There are many examples of perms.
It is simple
The synchronization of chaotic oscillatory systems should lead to a bifurcation point. The resulting bifurcation point should be followed by a final functional action, which is typically the apoptosis or mitophagy of damaged organelles. Many proteins participate in modulation of the PERM system. The effects of xenobiotics and phytochemicals, which are known to cause cell injury and increase apoptosis, may alter the PERM system.
It is based on location theory
The location theory in housing has evolved a lot differently than that of business. The original optimisation principles of Alonso were never rejected, but newer generations have added elements to the classical theory. The newer models of location are based on the concept of heterogeneous firms. It is based on the idea that firms are more profitable in certain locations than in others. The key difference between housing and business location theories is that the former is more focused on the location of goods and services.
It is incompatible with perdurantism
Endurantism requires a different account of change in a world with persistence of perm. This entails that change in the past does not affect the present. It is a contradiction in terms, since endurantism requires change to occur in the past. This way of thinking is not shared by many endurantists. So, perdurantism has its own problems.
