Between Alpha and Omega only
We are embarked in the 'middle' of a History we live in, perpetually unfinished and remaining perpetually open. We are not mains of the future. Hardly we get the present. As for the past, it is never but about a 'certain' past. The question of the sense of history and the question of its goal remains forever out of our range. History embarks man on the mad side. We can never totalize but between Alpha and Omega. As large they may be, our systems are only floating 'bubbles' on a vast gaping.
There is a sense however. The impossibility of locking up the totality of History in a system and, therefore, of assigning it an 'end', an ultimate stage, frees the way of searching for its significance. History cannot be an 'object' of comprehension because it is primarily a 'subject' of decision. The gaping of History is chance for the basic essentials of man exposed to freedom. It is not History that leads man, it is man who tries to lead History. There is revealed a very major sense of the human condition called for being beyond and going ahead. A being on the way. Not on a nice road traced in advance but simply marked out by the major options depending on a faith.
Through uncertainty and risk... The uncertainty and the risk of the historical adventure is the privileged dimension of freedom and the urgency of decision. The opening of a 'not-still-decided' future provokes an existential decision. Nothing is never played. Every thing has to be played. In the infinity of adventure. The great human risk to be taken…
History is yet only an unimportant series of factual events before an act of meaning gives it sense and assumes it in a project of significance. The act which thus opens history and confers it its dynamics is dialectical.
Man will without doubt never come to terms with the total comprehension of history. It is however possible to discover a key giving access to its intelligence. Not a solidifying structure but just a key. Not an answer allowing the construction of a system but a question which engages on the infinite way of a reflection. Not a diagram claiming the control of a diachronic totality starting from a synchronic structure of history but a scheme of the decisive topicality of the historic decision.
As an essential dimension of human reality, History starts like mankind itself with a no. So can difference be and also the overtaking of difference. Dialectical motion. Historical dynamics.
