Is existence restricted by the rendering of the being?
For example, as I am rendered as a physical being in the form of my body, is the plane of my existence limited to the physical world?

I would like to hear some thoughts on this.

  • Too vague a question. How "rendering" occurs? Any way, "physical" cannot preceed existence. Primeval "body" coincides with my here facticity in the world. Empirical body is a secondary psychical ("physical") object. – ttnphns Dec 24 '17 at 16:47

    Your physical being could have a dual aspect. It could be 'thinking matter', matter that has consciousness. As conscious, who knows what planes of existence it might open up ? Some religious hold that through consciousness we have contact with the supernatural. I am merely sketching a conceptual possibility. – Geoffrey Thomas Dec 24 '17 at 19:05
  • 'Preceed' or perhaps 'precede' (Latin. praecedere) ? – Geoffrey Thomas Dec 24 '17 at 20:15
  • @Geoffrey, thank you for the grammar check. (English isn't my everyday usage.) – ttnphns Dec 25 '17 at 0:39
  • @ttnphns. I felt a bit guilty for taking up such a minor point. I agreed with your post, which is the best so far. All the best : GT – Geoffrey Thomas Dec 25 '17 at 9:58
