For change means that the same thing should be different now from what it was previously…But in creation, by which the whole substance of a thing is produced, the same thing can be taken as different now and before, only according to our way of understanding, so that a thing is understood as first not existing at all, and afterwards as existing.”
– Thomas Aquinas”
