In the event of human imagining, a storm with lightning is over the ocean at night. The dog is scared. The fish is scared. The dog is a seal. The fish is a seal. In the event of human imagining, the seal is a dog-fish, like a dog and a fish. The dog and the fish are scared in the night.
The sealness of the dog-fish is not the seal on a document or the seal on a moment that is “sealed upon the mind”. Nor is it the book of judgment with seven seals. No, the seal is an “unsealing” — from the dog-fish are separated The Two: Dog and Fish. A dog and a fish are scared in the night.
The nightness of the night is as dark as a midnight sun because the nightness of night does not speak to an absence of sun. If night were the absence of sun there would be no night, for we know from astronomy that the sun is always present. Night is not the night of astronomy. Night is the “nought” — night is the time of fear, when the dog and the fish are scared.
To be “scared” is to be a-scared or “as cared”. The dog and the fish care for each other. A dog cares for a fish, a fish cares for a dog, in their mutual care they are “sealed”.
They are seals.
