Any kind of intelligible actions performed by us is made of some use of our understanding of being which has already been there beforehand; otherwise there will be no such intelligible actions. If there are no intelligible actions in us, the meaning of us as human beings is completely lost, because we as human beings living or existing in the world only have one basic state which is characterized by Heidegger’s sense of being-in-the-world. Being-in-the-world means we are always somewhat intelligible in the world, and this intelligibility is made up of our understanding of being.
