The Specifically Human Kairic Timing of~Life: Freedom And Accomplishment
With the full-fledged human creative mind that emerges in the ascent of life to the human condition, there emerges also an altogether different timing of life. We call this “kairic timing” in contradistinction to the “kronos timing” of survival-oriented sharing-in-life, which follows the directives of the ontopoietic design’s purposeful unfolding of the living individual. Kronos timing corresponds to the realm of Bios as it times itself, poised as it is between the two extremes of necessity (the constructive entelechial principle) and hazard (the external conditions for the principle’s deployment). Kronos and Kairos, which are life’s arteries, take shape in this oscillation.
