6. The sense in which the τέλειον is a being-character is only made genuinely clear in the further determination of the τέλειον. There is mention of a τελείως ἐφθάρθαι [MF   4 16, 1021 b 27]. Furthermore, the τελευτή, “death,” is designated as τέλος [MF   4 16, 1021 b 28sq]. What becomes visible in this carrying-over? We say of a human being: “He is finished, used up, entirely completed.” Here it means that he is no longer what he was earlier; the one that he genuinely was earlier is no longer there. Being-completed is being-gone-from-being-there [Aus-dem-Dasein-Wegsein]. What is the sense of the carrying-over when τελευτή is designated as τέλος? With death, life is at its end; death makes life complete in that it takes being away from the there, life disappears. With this carrying-over, τέλειον shows itself, τέλος as a character of being-there, insofar as τὸ τέλος, τέλειον, designates that being-there which we designate as no-longer-being-there, being-gone. Being-gone is a distinctive mode of being-there. Precisely in this carry-over from τέλος and τέλειον to death, the distinctive function of τέλειον shows itself to be the character of being-there in the distinctive possibility of disappearing [[MF   4 16, 1021 b 25-29] [Heidegger  , GA18  :87-88].
