  1. Just reading a ‘cartoon version’ of Heidegger’s treatment of veiling and unveiling, the revealing through disclosure of part being which will always consequently not reveal the whole, or vital parts that remain undisclosed: So.

    The assertion of the truth as light could serve as a misdirection, for other essential elements of the whole would remain necessarily hidden in darkness.
