Microgenesis is a theory of brain and mental process, and process occurs in time or rather the awareness of time is generated by the process that, again, is embedded in the awareness…the distinction between the subjective and objective time and the gulf between philosophy of mind and of science is central to the mind/brain problem.
Of course some anchoring is needed to find one’s way in the flux of process. The making of categories as anchors for thought is what the mind does best. But one must be alert – things are in constant change, and it is in change, not in constancy that is the key to understanding the thing itself.
Bergson’s critique of the logic of the solid bodies, is pertinent here. Psychology use “solid bodies all the time” as rough conceptual tools. But then the dynamic of within operation is lost and the dynamic between operations shrinks to a connecting line. This trick of eliminating a dynamic and artificially resurrecting it in a connection is the bugbear of localization. This is what come of ignoring the role of time in psychological processes.
