But this is hardly reassuring for the subject, who is originally defined in the fragment by the experience of his utter unimportance. ’ This is not because he realizes the contingency of his existence; this is not news to him. Rather it is because he realizes the contingency of his bond to God: He exists only as something opposed [to the object] and one of a pair of opposites is reciprocally condition and conditioned.
