    It is being a rock unless you have another meeting for being.

    An animist may see it that way.

    I thing we are on different wavelengths here. It is an inanimate mineral, it cannot grow, it cannot reproduce, they do not die.

    In this case being a rock, being a cell phone, being fresh air is my interpretation of bring i.e. it exists

    Life would not be possible if not for that rock.

    No rock, no being.
