It seems like a lot of potential for Being comes out of a being-authentic-with Dasein. In order for one to fully recognize themselves as a being/Being with Dasein they have to be able to attain an authentic sense of self. Dasein's authenticity stems from the way in which Dasein interacts with its way of existing in the world. Without having an authentic existence, Dasein would be meaningless. The call of conscience makes Dasein pay attention to itself because of the way it has to be in the world. Dasein has to know and be understood as something with others because that is the only way it can know itself as something that takes part in Being.
