    a higher being ist der feststehende Begriff

    What's wrong with "higher being"? Mehr Probleme hätte ich mit dem "Auseinandernahmen". Took to work?

    @ Ferenczi

    that is the past tense of "auseinandernehmen:, a separable verb, meaning "to take apart"

    i.e., he took the theory apart

    Todd, I don't get it. What are you trying to tell me? Past tense, right, so, e.g. "he tore the theory to pieces" etc. "To take sth./sb. to work" -- this I've read just recently in a piece from a native speaker.

    maybe I didn't understand your entry but it seemed to me like you thought the verb was "auseinandernahmen" and that it meant "to take to work"

    auseinander nehmen = to tear to pieces, take apart

    to take to TASK can have similar meaning to "to take apart"
