V. The event. The vocabulary of its essence [163–165]

Appropriateness.        This word says that beings have been admitted into their inceptually fitting being, fitting as measured against the measure of inceptuality. “Appropriate” does not here mean “opportune”; instead, it signifies entrance into the eventuation which assigns all beings to the inceptuality of the beginning, such that they essentially occur no longer in their “examination” for the human being but, rather, out of their “absence” (i.e., here, departure) toward the event. This change of beingness (beingness itself traverses its history as οὐσία, visibility, presence, actuality, objectivity, will to willing) into appropriateness does not require a restless ordering and reordering. The change eventuates in the transition into the other beginning, which is the overcoming of metaphysics. Metaphysics, as the history of the beingness of beings in the sense of visibility and objectivity, is nevertheless determined by the event. The essence of the event grounds the fact that every being as a being is admitted into a uniqueness and is more proper the more essentially it is at any time the individual of a singling out as unique. Individuality in this sense is essentially distinct from the particularization and instantiation of the individual “cases” which are set off against the “universal.” It is in this way that metaphysics grasps individuation as particularization. Its principium individuationis reads correspondingly. Metaphysics ends in the supremacy of the undifferentiatedness of beings, because beings are given up to the abandonment by being and because being is relinquished through the forgottenness of being.
The dispropriation of beings sets in when being in the first beginning has scarcely emerged on the way to φύσις and has lit up its first essential occurrence in ἀλήθεια. The dispropriation withdraws beings from the assignment to the beginning. Being is presence, rigidifies into this essence, and out of such rigidity gives priority to beings, since nothing can be thought of as more present than the present thing itself. The dispropriation abandons being to the advancement
