Like Kant and Hölderlin Withal: The Ontological New-Romantic Period According to Paweł Markiewicz

This is a philosophy that Paweł Markiewicz has drafted.

Paweł Markiewicz is author of poesy as well as of thinkful flash fiction and essays. Pawel was winner of a 2019 poetry competition in Ybbs, Austria, winning second place.

Proceeding from Kant´s sentence: “The bestarred heaven above me, the moral law in me.”

There are two parts on Earth: the human part down below and the starry section up there.

One reaches for the stars, longs for them, dreams of them; there is a marvelous star for philosophers, one wakes up at the Morning Star.

From the star’s perspective: the people are moving barely; it is in fact a human tremor. The human role is not to move, but to let achieve the human-becoming. The humanization accomplishes anyhow through dreaming, whereat everyone is able to dream. The other ways of becoming human are the following: art (as well as literature), religious thoughts, philosophy.

The people are only under the stars, only a genius-like spirit (born from religion, art, or philosophy) can prevail over the stars, hanging.

In the time of the demise, each one gets a mite of little light of the stars. This lightlet is needful to pass over to the sempiternity (such an obol).

A tender argent light the living poets get from a star-muse, every time that they enchant by means of the most propitious poems the ontological being. The star-muse lives on the morning star, on dreamy Venus.

There are plenty of the stars. After the human decease, it is given for each an star in remembrance of the man: a forename, like the decedent, and the surname; an another of insect-names, as the meekest names in German *in English too (the most marvelous nemes). The muse of Venus above gives these names.

The dualism of verbs: “become” versus “be.”

  • Become: down here.
  • Be: on the starlit heaven.

For example:

  • Humanization, the dreamery, arts, religion, knowledge.

By contrast:

  • Stars are immovable, the venus-like muse is she-custodian of the night being of starry night (for the sake of the lingo, it would be valid by a conceived extra-neologism, to wit: starrynight-being).

Only at the naming of stars the being and becoming combine a wee bit like the dreamy contingence.

The dreamed Venus for the muse´s sake is star or not star, so it is a question.

I want to follow the most magnificent dreaming of Kant and to become such like Kant.

The Paweł-star would be called: Paweł-painted lady (butterfly).

And the moon? Is it absent? The Watery Star (the moon called by Shakespeare in The Winter’s Tale) is present. It is by a sibyl administrated that she must manage the following. Firstly, she is keeping slips on which human-like dreams and earthly arcana have been written down golden. She conjures the ocean of the stars so that the stars are shined by the moon. She is mesmerizing the sea of stars, so that the stars after their naming are shined twice by the tender moon. The moon has something common to do with the Earth, namely the shivering. In case of the moon this is an atomic vibration, what would bring into being the ontology of corpuscles.

Paweł and Friedrich have something in common, to wit:

  1. Both suffer from the lifelong ache of the secular weird; it influenced our distinct writing.
  2. Both are philosophers.
  3. We are meek poets; Paweł´s poesy was read at Radio Tide Hamburg.
  4. Greek motives in their poetries; gods as well as demigods.
  5. Greek theater (theatre) texts Paweł wrote: Party of Zeus, Friedrich, The Death of Empedokles.
  6. Paweł wrote about 300 poems (provably), Friedrich´s full poetries in Polish (translated in the 20th century) number about 300 works.

It is simply peaceful to have become F. Hölderlin.
