To be of thing

13 Mar
AaoSerDoente this concept is confined in the philosophy and is to be of uncommon use in the day to day, to argue and to explain the deepest problem of our time: the being, or a being projected out of its existence, or its emptying.
Roughly, Being has no form, in its origin is the ancient thought of the pre-Socratic philosopher Parmenides who confused the sphere of the essence of the thing with the homogeneous and continuous essence of the thing, means in short to him: Being is and the non-Being is not, there can be no third option, and at the same time something can not be A and not -A simultaneously.
This simple logic seems pure evidence, but it has developed until modernity, where it was asked why there is everything and not nothing, the very definition of nothing, from zero and infinity, while logical definitions date from the beginning of modernity, even the zero absolute degree, where a body would be completely stopped, zero absolute degree, is modern conception.
In philosophy is the appearance of nihil, from nothing at all, to which much of humanity seems to be confined in search of a meaning for life, or even contempt for it.
To simplify again, in contemporary thought, the being is that which has form, while Being has no form, it is only its existence in the emptiness or finitude of life, since everything is even in the abstract, for example, the number has form (it could even be said that it is the form par excellence) while something that has no form can be quantified but should not, the soul (perhaps the Being par excellence, admitting its existence at least as “thought”).
St. Thomas Aquinas in his thesis on “Being and Essence” used the term “quiddity” to indicate the essence of things, more simply said, what the thing is.
Thus being has no form, it is an abstraction, a thought or how we define a “noon” a spiritual thought, while the being is the form, its objective vision, concrete to the present taste.
When we affirm objective, objectivity, practice (not in the broadest sense of phenomenal experience) we are speaking of being, of something that the senses perceive, to the liking of appropriating.
In the pre-Socratic philosophy Parmenides, one confuses the being with the sphere of the essence sphere; if on the one hand it can not be said that it is human and inhuman about being, it can be said that it is liquid, liquefied or in a state of liquefaction in the sphere of the being, not being able to have two states, although it oscillates between the two, it can be said in the sphere of the being something is virtually, being still not being as act, it is in potency, a seed is a tree, but still is not.
We demand in our contemporaneity the permanence of the being in the being, by this we say to be-do-ente, whereas the Being-of-Being may not be, in a concrete way when we admit the presence of the Other, we are and are not for Being -with-another.
The being-of-being, at the same time as being separated from things by the financial aspect or by estrangement, is projected on them as reification, does not know how to manage them in everyday use, criticisms of the use of mediums nowadays , the use of some devices, if used only for their purpose, is not a being-of-thing, but a being-of-being made for human use, to confuse it as being, to assign moral categories to it, sick (being-to-sick, translate to portuguese “ser do-ente” is similar to being-to-sick).
