Example text

It cannot happen either that a body should be at rest for one instant which would have been moving up until this instant with a velocity of one meter per second and would On What is Continuous 21 then instantaneously move off with the same velocity in the opposite direction. What we must say in this latter case is rather that the two movements in opposite directions touch each other in time and that in one and the same present moment, whose plerosis is twosided, the body experiences two opposite motions in half plerosis, each having a plerosis in relation to a different side.

It is easy to understand that in the case of what is secondarily continuous one can speak of the just-discussed uniformity just as little as of a uniformity of teleosis, for in the case of complete teleosis it would have a specific variation in not even one of the conceivable directions. One thing can be said of it as of the primarily continuous, however, namely that, whether it is given in complete or in incomplete teleosis, it can never be limited in its extension in such a way that it manifests itself as an isolated boundary.
