Reflection planes are many situations wherein the Being folds upon itself. The Being as Being is always in this collapsed state. In other words, there is neither the Being and then the other that look at one another and create a mediation to come into contact with the Being itself. The Being is always already folded; it is thereby always already mediated. The fundamental characteristic of the Being is to produce a fold, a “reflection” or, even better, a “reflection plane.” This is what we can call mediation. This folding does not occur at a level of our comprehension, but rather before all comprehension.
