From where do you have this? Essence is reflection and with this it refers to what has been, however, as sublated, as mere semblance of the essence, as 'something' which fist has to be determined, posited anew starting from this very semblance as the whole. And, as the truth of pure being is pure becoming, the truth of the semblance of the essence is the ground - the pure or absolute essence. Many of the modern philosophers of the Analytical mainstream talk about the ground or grounds as the incarnation of reason. They first should have an idea what kind of a category ground is, that it is not a category of being but a category of essence, reflection which has its 'other' not outside itself.
