You're shadowboxing, Rene, against a long dead theology that interprets
Dasein as fundamentally a metaphysical existent (a soul-thing). If you want
to keep fighting the dead and pretending that this is worth anything - well,
whatever makes you happy. Or, you can learn from theologians who already
know what Heidegger says about the Nothing, and accept it.
