I'm reminded of this passage from Heidegger's "Introduction to Metaphysics":Where now is the Being of this high school? ... For us, as observers or passers by, it is not what it is for the students who sit inside, not just because they see it only from the inside, but because for them, this building really is what it is and how it is. One can, as it were, smell the Being of such buildings, and often after decades one still has the scent in one’s nose. The scent provides the Being of this being much more directly and truly than it could be communicated by any description or inspection.
Hey, I like that! Thanks for sharing it.
