Let Me Restate, "Nonbeing is not Being"


Since yesterday's post, I have seen a better way to express the ambiguity in the following statement:
"Nonbeing is not Being."
Possibly, the statement means:
"'Nonbeing' is not 'Being.'"
The concept "Nonbeing" and the concept "Being" are in this case opposites. But possibly, the statement means:
"'Nonbeing' is 'not Being.'"
The concept "Nonbeing" and the concept "not Being" are in this case identical.

This is trivial, of course, but my mind is second-rate.
