This positioning occurs as a conscription [die Gestellung]. The demand for conscription is directed at the human. But within the whole of what presences, the human is not the only presence approached by conscription. A tract of land is imposed upon, namely for the coal and ore that subsists in it. The subsistence of stone is presumably already conceived within the horizon of such a positioning and even only conceivable in terms of this. The subsisting stone that, as such, is already evaluated for a self-positioning is challenged forth and subsequently expedited along.
But this is no piling up of machines. The machinery runs from the plundering of the drive, as which positionality orders the standing reserve. Even when not immediately and not instantly perceived, positionality has already from the outset abolished all those places where the spinning wheel and water mill previously stood. Through its machinery, positionality orders in advance another kind of positioning and its regime. In this there only comes to stand that which stands in place, uniformly at the ready as orderable.
For this it is necessary that we observe how requisitioning from the outset attacks everything that is: Nature and history, humans, and divinities; for if an ill-advised theology today orders the results of modern atomic physics so as to secure with their help its proofs for the existence of God, then in so doing God is placed into the realm of the orderable. Requisitioning affects all that presences in respect to its presence9 with a conscripting. Requisitioning is only directed at one thing, versus unum, namely to position the one whole of what presences as standing reserve.
