This chapter analyzes Alfred North Whitehead's and Zeno's concept of time. Whitehead suggests an assimilation of force and affectivity that was based on an interpretation of the Platonic matrix as diversified by vectors, which can be looked upon as both physical forces and phenomenological affects. This chapter also explores participatory, holistic, and creative strands in quantum mechanics that both reinforce this position on continuity and its holistic implications and establish the relevance of participation for particle physics.
