Beginning and event

250. In what does the essential unity of event and beginning dwell?

To what extent is the beginning event-like? To what extent is the appropriating event beginning-like?

The unity of the event and the beginning is to be known from their intimacy.

This “unity” is the abyss of the difference and is the inhabited place of the pain of the thinking of beyng in its history. This “unity” is the inceptuality of the ἕν and might in the future teach us to surmise why the ἕν weighed so heavily on thinking at the first beginning. The ἕν itself already only on the basis of ἀλήθεια (cf. τὸ γὰρ αὐτό).

It must for a long time remain strange that event and beginning “are” intimately the same.

The event is the inceptuality of the beginning. The beginning is the denial of the differentiated departure.

251. The counter-turn in the event and the beginning

The event as consignment of the clearing and refusal of the grounding.

Refusal as denial; this denial the inceptual word of the inceptual claim.

The inceptuality as abyssal and yet emergent.

252. The beginning

The beginning is not inceptually in the inceptuality; the beginning commences in what has not begun, inasmuch as the beginning disentangles itself from that in order to emerge. The disentangling is what is concealed of the unconcealedness.
