How is the arrival of things possible?

Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (3):389-408 (2008)
Abstract
  Ancient Chinese thought inquired primarily into how the achievement of things is possible rather than into what a thing as a thing is. It held that man should participate in the achieving or generation of things in order to realize his self-achievement. A thing is understood as an event. Because all things and man are united as one, it is possible for man to enter into things by tasting and feeling rather than by relying on the sense of sight. This may provide a possible new means of rescuing things from the numericalization and phenomenalization that sweep over the world today.
Keywords the achieving of a thing  things as events  tasting  feeling  成物  以事解物
