In this following context, what does the phrase ''but rather'' mean? Is it ''whowever'' or ''in fact''?
Should I take as: Hence the body is not a persisting something, but the body is rather a continually changing process of arising ...?
Please, simplify to me this sentence...
Thanks to All...
Hence the body is not a persisting something, but rather a continually changing process of arising and passing away, consisting of a perpetual dying out and arising anew of cells.
