This chapter discusses adoration and the dis-enclosure of religion. It suggests that adoration involves awakening of the spirit and it signals a relationship to a presence not in the accepted sense of the word but to the presence of the opening, the dehiscence, the breach, or the breaking out of the “here” itself. This chapter also argues that the very fact of existence prevents it from being “finite” in the sense of having no extension beyond itself and discusses the difference between the concepts of addition and adoration.

Keywords:   adoration, religion, spirit, existence, finite, addition
