      Rick, Willy and all,
      Why is the question of continuity and discontinuity so important to you? Do
      you have a clue as to what SK meant by discontinuity? What do you mean by
      "double movement?" Ditto! Can you explain what this means to you, in words
      that are not poor english translations of early 19th century Danish? Have
      you incorporated this stuff into your own self to self relation or are you
      just playing around with words you don't know? These are the interesting
      questions and there are more to come.

      Jim and willy and all,

      Placing the emphasis on the self to self relation gets us closer to
      the divide but does not bridge the divide. The question of continuity
      or discontinuity still remains. And there is still the question of the
      God-relation. What does the change in the self to self relation mean
      in respect to Kierkegaard's scheme of things? I found this quote in
      willy's bin. Isn't this the double movement in different words? I am
      trying to bring these discussions back to Kierkegaard and away from
      the personal. Uncle willy, behave yourself.

      Cheers,
      Rick

      "To come to oneself in self-knowledge /and before God/. If
      self-knowledge does not lead to knowing oneself before God¬ówell, then
      there is something to what purely self-observation says, namely, that
      this self-knowledge leads to a certain emptiness that produces
      dizziness. Only by being before God can one totally come to oneself in
      the transparency of soberness." JY, Hong, p.106)
