In the light of Reason, a clearing must first be present. This is the clearing of Being, in which the light of reason can throw its light. Reason needs this clearing first, which is to say that reason is subordinate to being. Light can stream into the clearing and allow brightness to play with darkness. However, light does not create the clearing. Other modes enter the clearing: resonance and echo, sound and the diminishing of sound, everything that becomes present and absent. The scientific mode of reason, revealment, truth is not the only mode. The clearing is beyond the light and thus, allows for many modes of perception.
