I don't think you can separate "change" from "time." What you're calling "mind-stream," it seems to me, is nothing other than the manifestation of time itself. Time is inseparable from this mind. The "next moment" is co-created with the mind that perceives it.
No nature is a necessary factor for change to happen.
Mind knows, time can not know, it is not aware (knowing) without mind.
Time is the illusion of mind.
Because mind has no nature, (empty) every change can take place.
So time is no basis for nature.
