BEING AS EVENT
The act is truly real (it participates in once-occurrent being as event)
only in its entirety. It is an actual living participant in the on-going event of being.
… Empathising actualises something that did not exist either in
the object of empathising or in myself, prior to the act of empathising
and through this actualised something. Being as Event is enriched
(that is it does not remain equal to itself).
