We must accordingly note that sense-difference is what shows up first and foremost, and that for Husserl, it is explicated as a problem of temporality. It is in fact the case that what is given at any particular time is usually surrounded by a halo of undetermined determinability, which has its mode of being brought closer 'explicatively' in becoming separated into a number of intendings [Vorstellungen]; at first it still may be in the realm of obscurity, but then within the sphere of givenness until what is intended to comes into the sharply illuminated circle of perfect givenness.

And such thinking opens up a leeway of possibilities, rather than artificially confining it. It is entirely in this spirit that philosophical discourse functions within the terrain of the sciences in such a way as to secure their field of play in the first place. To each game there belongs a particular delimitationsometimes spatial, sometimes in the form of a particular mode of comportment - that marks out the world of play, the world of the game, and sets it apart from the natural world within which the game is played.

33 The world of play thus has a status that is similar to the "unnatural attitude" of phenomenology. It drops out from the natural world, yet on the one hand, it still has to be put into effect by a factual I, while on the other hand, there must still be some sense in which it is related back to the contents of the natural world (which are the same contents in play before the performance of the epoche).
