The Objective Reality of the Past: Some Further Reflections

Process Studies 38 (1):108 - 118 (2009)
Some Whiteheadians argue that past actual entities only exist and are available for prehension by later actual entities within the divine consequent nature. Others insist that past actual entities are objectively immortal and available for prehension within the extensive continuum. Based on an interpretation of Whiteheadian societies as structured fields of activity for their constituent actual occasions, this article proposes that the world has an objective reality even apart from the existence of God, and that past actual entities are reflected in the current structure of the cosmic process. Yet, the world still needs God as its ultimate source of creativity
