Rappler on a pandemic of nothing.
Due to the extreme circumstances brought about by the pandemic – one that has essentially dissolved any semblance of our daily practices – I believe we are gradually experiencing an exacerbated version of what German philosopher Martin Heidegger called encounters with “dasnichts” or “the nothing.” For those familiar with Heidegger’s work, you’ll know that he was keenly insightful but was immensely confusing as well. To put it in simpler terms, what Heidegger referred to are instances where we are confronted with the strangeness or even absurdity of everything. We begin to ask questions like: why are things in this manner? Or why are we here rather than there?

For when Ereignis is not sufficient.
