From the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies
, Franco Cortese on the todtality of Being
In the section being-toward-death he claims, on one level, that Being must be a totality, and in order to be a totality (in the sense of absolute or not containing anything outside of itself) it must also be that which it is not. Being can only become what it is not through death and so in order for Being to become a totality (which he argues it must in order to achieve authenticity – which is the goal all along, after all) it must become what it is not – that is, death – for completion.
So, on achieving authenticity, I am become death? Om Namah Shivaya.
