Damian Dombrowski -Michael Markwick: Natur und Zeit

Beim Wort ‚Naturereignis‘ denken wir rasch an Gewaltiges, Außerordentliches, oft auch Bedrohliches oder Erschütterndes – an eine Sonnenfinsternis vielleicht, an Erdbeben und Wirbelstürme oder an das Krachen, das einen abbrechenden Gletscher begleitet. Ein Naturereignis ist aber zunächst einmal nichts anders als Natur, die sich ereignet; das tut sie freilich immer, weil sie dauerhaft im Werden und Vergehen begriffen ist. Der Begriff umfasst also doch mehr, nämlich einen Betrachter, dem sie sich als Ereignis zeigt, und eine zeitliche Begrenzung dieses Sich-Ereignens. Ein Naturereignis ist vor allem Natur-Erscheinung, die das schauende Erleben im Vorübergang voraussetzt. Mehr Lezen
