Veiled

Veiled over still is the poetic nature of thinking.
Where it does appear,  it is for a long time taken to be the Utopia of a half-poetic mind.
But in truth poetic thinking is not Utopia but topology,
the topology of Being.
It discloses the place where Being has its essence.

Heidegger

"There is no human essence

There is no human essence; the human being is a potential being [che l'uomo e un essere di potenza] "
G.Agamben

Tomorrow

That which will come tomorrow (and this is what every-day concern keeps awaiting) is "eternally yesterday's".

II. According to the Robert dictionnaire historique the word paysage first appears in French in 1549, initially as ‘a term of painting designating the representation of a generally rural site, then the painting itself’. The word’s history roughly parallels that of its English counterpart, landscape, a rendition of the Dutch landschap imported in 1602 to designate a painting of natural inland scenery. Interestingly, the rst reference in English to the natural world itself as a ‘landscape’ does not appear until 1642 (here in the simple sense of ‘a bird’s-eye view’), which suggests that art precedes nature in this instance and that 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘱𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘵𝘢𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘦𝘦 𝘢𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘵𝘪𝘤 𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘴𝘤𝘢𝘱𝘦𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥.
