The questioner no doubt recognizes remarkable congeniality between Taoist thought and the contemporary tradition of process thought in the West. Taoism, like Buddhism, is an ancient process tradition like. But whereas Buddhism was a conscious rejection of a dominant substantialist mode of thought, the Tao seems more to articulate established sensibility. Probably process thinking has been native to East Asia for a very long time.
