What does it mean when we say that something is “new”? Not just “new” in an ordinary sense of “another one”, “the next one”, or “the latest”. The truly new in question is here meant in both the strong and the narrow sense of a radical novelty not only unheard of, or unknown yet, but positively non-existent before it started to be. All attempts to put into words the most ordinary meaning of what is “new” are doomed to fail. “New” is anything that has not been before, or that did not exist prior to its coming into existence. This is the kind of newness we shall deal with here – the kind that turns the world (a realm of reality) into something different, in a typical case into something richer than it had been before.
