Note 5

This total determination can however vary (in time), namely first in this direction, and thereafter in another direction. Each total determination results, each for itself, in a here-and-now individual. The totality of possible (further) determinations (into the diverse possible determination-directions) results in a 'historical individual', for instance Socrates (during his entire life, i.e. covering the total time-span of his existence).
