Definition
to recognize difference
  • Here, on the borders of death, life follows an amazingly simple course, it is limited to what is most necessary.... Were we more subtly differentiated we must long since have gone mad, have deserted, or have fallen. As in a polar expedition, every expression of life must serve only the preservation of existence, and is absolutely focused on that.
