Ali’s in the World of Heavens is an aesthetic learning experience that depicts Alfred North Whitehead’s philosophy of education as it was described in his books (Whitehead, 1910; 1911; 1929; 1934; 1938a; 1938b; 1938c; 1938d; 1985) and by other analyses (Ernest, 2000). Process philosophy implicitly guides much of the discussion throughout this paper. Many of the concepts are explained in the endnotes to help readers see hypothesized connections. In short, this narrative uses a familiar style to explainbecoming as it belongs to the temporal world, compared tobeing, which is characterized by an eternal non-changing world. This short story demonstrates how allbecoming s are moving to a destination to fulfill their potential - thus becomingimportant being s rather than remaining simplyexpression s.
