Binary and dual

14 Mar

It is not the contemporary world that created binary dualistic logic, it only simplified arithmetic using Boolean Algebra, by the fact that simulating 0 and 1 in a machine is simpler than a decimal arithmetic that Western civilization has adopted.

But the onto-logic of Being that comes from Parmenides that says being is, and non-being is not, and has come to our day by Cartesian rationalism and Kant-Hegelian idealism, we are divided into two worlds: being and not to be, right and wrong, oppressive and oppressed, being and being, which distances objectivism and subjectivism from any ontological discussion. In philosophical terms.

It is difficult, but enlightening, “Because metaphysics interrogates the being, while being, it remains close to the being and does not turn to being as a being” (Heidegger 1983: 55).

It is a misconception to think that Heidegger has imputed metaphysics by destroying it, for it links it in an essential way to Dasein (the being in a simple definition), written clearly in its text: “Metaphysics is the essential event within be-there.

It is the very being-there “(HEIDEGGER 1983: 44). It is by the metaphysical event that the being-there human that establishes relation with the being, but this occurs in the world, it is necessary to be-in-the-world (in the broadest way) and this being demands a non-being relation for being with the Other, who is not the Self, then not-being is also Being.

It can be confused with nothingness, nihilism is an essence of our time, and can lead to the time of emptiness, as Nietzsche thought, and now Lipovetsky (The age of emptiness).

The Trinitarian being demands beyond the Self (which is not the Self because it admits the Other), the Other and the non-Being that is something beyond nothing, as Teilhard de Chardin explains: “nothing-being coincides with fully realized plurality. Pure nothingness is an empty concept, a pseudo-idea “(Chardin, 2006, p. 107).

It is possible for a relationship that goes beyond the level of formal dialogue, this non-being is necessary, an emptiness that admits the Other, different from the Same.
