When does an action exist?
Just recently, I was having a discussion that led me to ponder on this on:
So the question is... when does an action exist?
)> When it's defined, or thought of. Before or after it occurs.
)> Only while it happens, if it was thought of, but never done, it doesn't exist. Nor does it exist if it was done, but is no longer done.
)> As soon as it's done. Once an action was done, it came into existence, and won't stop existing even after it's no longer being done.
)> Actions don't exist. We talk like the say do, but really we shouldn't because an action can't really exist.
)> Something else?
Explain your opinion, and why.
