Part Four: Scatterings

Legacy of the Being Question

Paths and Place

Hold them apart:
the path of thinking
from all° process of settings.*

Between the process and the path,
a gulf yawns

The ownmost of being –
beings never once unequal.

°the ownmost of contemporary technology and all the sciences grounded upon it: the framing.

* settings: laid out among the available.
