'It is obvious,.. that no idea can lead beyond the existing spectacle, but only beyond the existing ideas of the ideas on the spectacle'
The gunner who has been assigned an objective carefully points his gun in a certain direction excluding all others. But even this would still be nothing unless the being of the gunner's objective is revealed as fragile. And what is fragility if not a certain probability of non-being for a given being under determined circumstances. A being is fragile if it carries in its being a definite possibility of non-being.
