Buber on Presence

11900022_10207650137196556_9131828554163812612_nFrom Martin Buber’s I and Thou: “The present – not that which is like a point and merely designates whatever our thoughts may posit as the end of ‘elapsed’ time, the fiction of the fixed lapse, but the actual and fulfilled present – exists only insofar as presentness, encounter, and relation exists. Only as the You becomes present does presence come into being.”
