A Being

A being

Thay explained that the definition of a being should not be restricted to living things only. A non-living thing, e.g. a cup or a table, is also a being because, like a living thing, its existence is a combination of causes and conditions. All beings, living or non-living, come into existence when there are sufficient causes and favourable conditions, and they cease to exist when the causes and conditions are no longer supportive.
