Crevasse as Inbetween

In Heidegger, space is the primal distinguishing factor.  Circularity of space is lingered ‘through’ in time.  Time corresponds to space in all its circularity. It is a transposition of ‘sameness’ of space in time. Being is oblivious of itself, its ethos.  Being takes its situatedness in space as ‘for-itself’ occurrence of Being ‘in-itself’.  Being is ‘timeized’ through this primary ‘double’ situation enveloped through whole of ‘life-world’ and death.  This timeized primary double situation amounts to Being ‘in-itself’, for the otherized ‘whole’ worldly conditioning of intermediate inbetween denotative spatiality. Being has its own utterance of inbetweenness.  ‘Wound’ of meta-physics amounts to or is at par with spirit, which is not ‘internal’ to Being or experience.  Experience on the other hand, with its affirmation of stray facts, amounts to certain external positivity.  This wound of ‘meta-physics’ is not only a negative force, but through a creation of crevasse, forestalls its own movement. This negative movement, which brings in crevasse, is ‘internalized’ through the locus of facticity, within positivism of experience.  This creation of crevasse within experience is an infinite regression and at the same time, a forgetting of ‘meta-physical’ wound. This forgetting of the wound through creation of gaps or dotted crevasse is the inbetween of experience. At the level of phenomena in its modal intricacy, this corrugates to a certain positive ground for experience.  Nodal moments are lived through time hypostatized.  This cylindrical authoritative time is noted as gas-chamber commerce, wound of experience.  Yet mankind begets time for forgiving, as is written in history.  It is the second coming dressed as inbetween, signs and signatures of time immemorial.  This displaces Being in its transitoriness. It connotes between spaces.  That is history, situated in its ‘thereness’. This is the perfect condition where the wound and positive experience creates the ‘for-itself’ denotative space of inbetween. So, the crevasse hole sustains itself through the condition of inbetween.  Certain utterences condones the gas chamber.  This withhelds the ground of positive. Yet, due to this forestalling, inbetween crevasse is created through the locus of infinite.  Thus is the ground of positive infinity.

I refer to T.W.Adorno’s discussion on the issue in Negative Dialectics (1966).
