One more bios theoretikos, or more precisely thaumazein, leads the speculative thinker to devour worldly events.
The fact that in the relationship to Ereignis thus understood what is at stake is less the dialogue of one with oneself(in which the thinking activity consists) than thaumazein (inasmuch as it extracts its speechless sign from every plurality) is something that Heidegger himself suggests when he connects Ereignis to what he calls Eraugnis, i.e., to a gaze that collects and gathers.
thaumazein: Wonder; as in Socrates: "wonder belongs to the philosopher".
