b.When did it go to Committee? What Committees did it go to? How many Democrats or Republicans are on each Committee? (Check out the Committees link).
c.When did it pass the House? If the information is available, how many Democrats and Republicans voted for or against this legislation? How many didn’t vote (abstained)? (Check out the House Votes on Passage link on the bill overview page.)
d.When did it pass the Senate? If the information is available, how many Democrats and Republicans voted for or against this legislation? How many didn’t vote (abstained)?
e.When did the President sign it?
The only factors that can be true according to presentists are ones that exist in the present, who rely on ‘possible worlds’ to substantiate talk of past and future. This could be seen as an easy solution as a confirmation that there is no contradiction, since only the present exists (Merricks, 1995). However, since this discussion is taking place in the actual worlds, one cannot reply on a presentist argument for possible world. For this reason, it seems unlikely to reach a conclusion to the possible contradiction to persistence and change over time. A school of thought that considers objects position in space and time is Three dimensionalism. Three dimensionalism is an umbrella term to describe both Endurantism, here represented by the views of E.J. Lowe, and Haslanger’s adverbialism. According to Lowe, objects persist by existing at more than one time, without having temporal. However, this seems to require greater explanation if the aim is to not contradict Leibniz’s Law. Both Endurantism and Adverbialism are united in the rejection of temporal parts, which will be discussed later on in this essay. The issue that endurantists often face is how to explain how ordinary objects can change their intrinsic properties whilst still maintaining the identity of the object. Endurantists consider it an obvious fallacy to deny Leibniz’s Law, and so demonstrate change over time with the use of temporal object relations. Lowe claims that the object’s intrinsic properties are a rearrangement of the fundamental particles that make up the object. This in his opinion substantiates the claim that objects can change their shape (i.e. change their intrinsic properties) because the fundamental particles rearrange themselves in such a way that a change is evident in that time relative of the time before when they were in a different state. This idea has some perceived merit as it could be seen to represent objects on an atomic level, therefore bringing Endurantism more in line with modern day physics. However, Lewis states that an object’s shape is not a relation between the object and a point in time, but the particular relation of its fundamental particles at a certain time. Intrinsic properties are defined by Lewis as ‘properties of an object which it has independently of anything else’; so, the fundamental particles cannot be intrinsic to the object as they are relative to the time in which they exist. Without intrinsic properties, there is no object; since all is relative to the time, there is no possibility of change of the single object, and the original problem of temporary intrinsics is only satisfied for as long as the relation is there. It is evident that an object lacking in intrinsic properties could not go through intrinsic change. Adverbialism uses a similar approach, yet ascribes rather than an object’s state being divided into temporal parts, one should consider the way in which the object in question has the property. For example, if one returns to the chair example; the chair has the property of being unbroken in a t1 way, and does not have the same property in a t2 way. However, this seems to fall into a similar issu>GET ANSWER
