In tendai, can the 1st (huayen) and 5th (lotus) teachings be called "potentiality" and "possible", respectively?
I know the word "potential" from Heidegger's Being and Time, who has appeared in comparative studies. The most eye catching phrase, being "my ownmost potentiality for being", that amounting to death therein. By possibility, I just mean the not "necessary" or "actual", in the standard analytic philosophical terms.
I won't go into why I might suppose that could be a viable interpretation.
