From where to where we can call that it is a river ?
We can't separate it from the environment. Although we recognize things by giving them a name. For example, a river consists of not only water but also the things you can find in/ by the river, such as stones, driftwood, fishes, garbage and even human beings. It might at first appear that those are distinct from each other and not in harmony, but actually everything has decomposed at any moment and combined with a new situation this in turn ultimately become a part of the river.
