The author concentrates on developing certain terms of traditional metaphysics. In particular, based on the principle of manifesting transcendence, she analyzes some judgments of Heraclitus from his “Fragments”. According to the paradigm of the manifesting transcendence of the pre-modern, God is immanently immanent to the world and is unified with it, whereas from the prospective of the creation transcendence, God is far from the world and is transcendentally transcendental to the world. It is indicated that such basic concepts of traditional metaphysics as manifesting transcendence, creation transcendence are only cultural-historical stages in understanding a unified transcendence and one of its dimensions as non-being. Similarly, it is hard to understand the non-dual “inter-stage link” between metaphysical transcendence and ontological being (the universe), which in Heraclitus’ work is expressed through the "ruling blow" of lightning.
