Brief and simplified discernment to inspire and encourage recognition and differentiation between the essence, nature, and ground of being. And essence, nature, and ground of nature or natural epistemology and ontology. And nature of reality and truth from human constructed epistemology and ontology.
Since nature is of infinite potentialities of possibilities. phenomena or epistemology and ontology can be of natural processes and mechanisms or sentient such as human constructed processes and mechanisms endowed by and facilitated through nature. A more common example is continuous and discreteness (as an illustration here https://physics.aps.org/articles/v14/104 and among many others discreteness development such as in current quantum gravity and quantum technology).
Discrete functions and features can be achieved do not mean they are the essence, nature, and ground of being. And nature. And nature of reality and truth. There exists infinite potentialities possibilities of spectra-field (i.e. energy, field, frequency, vibration, wave function, quantum fluctuation, information, and among others essence and nature of nature) between entities or elements (as shown in simplified illustrated diagram). A simple way of saying is nothing has its own intrinsic inherent independent existence. Another way of saying is would not even exist much less emerge, transform, and evolve. A more obvious or evidential and empirical way of stating is entanglement interaction phenomena in the known physical world. And beyond would not be possible.
And as such, defining discreteness as human constructs rather than of nature is essential to differentiate between nature and human constructed epistemology and ontology. And to prevent false perception and experience of the world. And nature of reality and truth. Otherwise would be counter productive and harmful in many ways such as things from particles to molecular to cellular to living things to sentient are perceived as not only separated from each other. Rather also separated from nature (which totally contradicted available evidence and empirical data). And as such, life and existence would be perceived and experience as random-chaotic, meaningless, purposeless, senseless, mechanistic, and or non-existential.
