Being is also linked to truth as Aletheia: as that which comes into unconcealment. Thus truth here is much more synthetic*, than analytical*. Analytical truth is truth as correspondence, or as adequation, where word (concept) and thing are deemed to be in harmony with each other because the word is supposed to be determined by the thing existing prior to it. Heidegger’s thought breaks with this common conception of things. Most of all it breaks with the calculating, instrumental rationality of late modernity* and postmodernity*.
The alternative to conventional monoculture farming and to biotechnology is organic farming. Here the aim is to construct a self-sustaining ecosystem which, through biodiversity, is able to withstand attacks by pests and radical changes in natural conditions. Sometimes the products of organic farming may not measure up to the Platonic ideal of current desire, but they do express the infinite potential contained in the complex genetic inheritance that comes from produce grown in the wild. With heterozygotic products, land is opened up that was previously unable to sustain agriculture.
Being part of, or continuous with, the world that they represent, analogical phenomena are thus ‘iconic’ (see icon). Translating iconic phenomena into another medium or representation is difficult, if not impossible: meaning in iconic phenomena, as analogical, is well nigh inexhaustible. As Wilden explains: ‘the analog [sic] is pregnant with MEANING whereas the digital domain of SIGNIFICATION is, relatively speaking, somewhat barren’ (1980: 163). The analogical may possess an essential complexity that has not yet been fully appreciated due to the dominance of digital processes.
