Contextual dynamics is about the dynamics for specifying the interrelated conditions of the contextual elements as an organized unity. Contextual specification can proceed even prior to the completion of specification of each individual element involved. Emergence of the context takes place through punctuation of the movement in the present progressive tense by the occurrence of the event registered in the present perfect tense. An energy quantum after Max Planck is a most prominent prototype of the context of material origin. Appearance of biological organizations and their evolution proceed through the transformation of the contexts of material origin. What is unique to the contextual dynamics is that contextual specification can move on even if specification of each contextual element constantly remains to be fulfilled.
