- Yes your point is correct, man s perception of him/herself alters ; but this refers to my point on being modified by the advancement; but the foundationMessage 2 of 8 , Nov 7, 2002View SourceYes your point is correct, "man's perception of him/herself
alters"; but this refers to my point on "being modified" by the
advancement; but the foundation remains the same, unchanged, and
thankfully; because, there are these underlying constants in our life.
I can wake up on any given day and still find that I am still the
Being whose being-is-a-self. I am still with others and still in the
world. These are not eliminated. And I agree with your point that
our perception changes. I understand this is both authentic change
and also more propoganda from the-they. The point is,
existentially, hermeneutic clarity lies in the
underlying primordial foundation. We can always come
back to that as the reference point for authenticity.
