seeking the path

‘myself exists’. Cf. NoD, SN, mama. p. 312/24-26 [Dasein makes no choices, gets carried along by the nobody, and thus ensnares itself in inauthenticity. This process can be reversed only if Dasein specifically brings itself back to itself from its lostness in the “they”.] last sentence noted: Camus. p. 321/27-28 [in the face of this “nothing”, Dasein is anxious with anxiety about its ownmost potentiality-for-Being.] noted: I.e. lest it should not be. p. 325/8-10 [we cannot seek to delimit any concrete single possibility of existence as long as we correctly understand the methodological possibilities and tasks which such an Interpretation implies.] noted: I.e. … we shall not seek … provided… p. 326/35-39 [‘Guilty!’ turns up as a predicate for the ‘I am’. Is it possible that what is understood as ‘guilt’ in our inauthentic interpretation lies in Dasein’s Being as such, and that it does so in such a way that so far as any Dasein factically exists, it is also guilty?] noted. p. 329/34-330/1 [Dasein’s Being is care. … As being, it has taken the definite form of a potentiality—for-Being which has heard itself and has devoted itself to itself, but not as itself.] ‘but not as itself’ u/l: No, but as a basis. p. 330/1-12 [… as long as Dasein is, Dasein, as care, is constantly its ‘that-it-is’. To this entity it has been delivered over, and as such it can exist solely as the entity which it is; and as this entity to which it has been thus delivered over, it is, in its existing, the basis of its potentiality-for-Being. Although it has not laid that basis itself it reposes in the weight of it, which is made manifest to it as a burden by Dasein’s mood.] noted: Viññå~a = Being; Nåmar¨pa = basis; Saπkhårå (or Cetanå) = possibilities. p. 330/22-23 [It itself, being a basis, is a nullity of itself.] noted: Because basis is not Being-basis. p. 330/26-28 [in being its Self, Dasein is, as a self, the entity that has been thrown. It has been released from its basis, not through itself but to itself, so as to be as this basis.] ‘released from its basis’ u/l: i.e. in authenticity? p. 330/28-30 [Dasein is not itself the basis of its Being, inasmuch as this basis first arises from its own projection; rather as Beingits-Self, it is the Being of its basis.] noted: I = viññå~a rather
