Thanks, but I'm not convinced that changing "life" to "be-ing" makes it more correct. Personally, I have a hard time imagining "being" without "being-as," but I'm coming from a perspective in which the absolutely unitary is "beyond being."
You brilliantly demonstrated what JPLosman0711 and I are saying.
Notice that when you attempt to think 'be-ing' your 'throwness' is to change it to "being-as" (some 'thing' to hold on to). The way you interpret the world (measurability and definability) is reflected back on you while you are Be-ing and instead of making a distinction between measurability and definability (thingdom), you cover up Be-ing and represent your 'self' as a 'thing'.
Heidegger says that we have to "formulate the question of Be-ing". We
have to formulate the question of Be-ing, each one of us
, for our 'selves'. The 'world' (measurability and definability) and the 'they' can't give us a measurable and definable answer to Be-ing. The 'world' and the 'they' can only give us measurable and definable things. It is
up to us to define Be-ing.
While you are Be-ing you use 'life' to represent 'living' and 'philosophical concepts' to replace 'thinking'. Be-ing shows up in living, working, thinking, doing, playing, running, riding, etc. Be-ing doesn't show up in the con-cept of 'life', the con-cept of 'work', or the con-cept of 'thoughts'.
Another thing, it is impossible for you to 'have thoughts". You don't 'think thoughts' as if thoughts are held in some container which is separate from who you are. You can only think and misrepresent it as 'having thoughts', in other words, you cover up Be-ing.
When you represent your 'self' as a 'thing' or as a thing called a 'concept' (a combination of characteristics), i.e, 'life', 'afterlife', 'animal rationale', 'subject/object', 'Kantian', 'Heideggerian' , etc. you are no longer thinking/Be-ing. Concepts are conclusions and they close off any possiblity of thinking/Be-ing. And you can't change 'life' to be-ing and think this will fix the problem either. An answer is just another 'thing' called a conclusion, no more thinking/Be-ing.
