Faust Series Opus 9 on the spatiality of ants and dasein.
Ants are particularly territorial. Their behaviour certainly lends credence to Heidegger’s claim that Dasein is in itself “spatial” (räumlich). Dasein possesses itself as space and as matter of necessity possesses or occupies the space of other Daseins. ‘Being-with’ or ‘Being-in-the-world’ is not just peaceful coexistence. The sheer presence in the world of other Daseins impinges on the spatiality of all other Daseins.
