The past becomes quiet as it slips into the spirit of history. It is being returning to itself once its retreat into consciousness has begun. Just as being is outside itself as being other than itself, it remains alienated from spirit until time removes that alienation and takes spirit through the incidental which has already occurred. In essence, being is always catching up to itself through its movement in time and each moment brings it closer to what has passed.
