From energy to matter, to ever growing complexity ... and in this growing complexity, the possibility of observation actualised. Observed light, observed directions, observed differences...
The line of the self is a territory where external principals simply persist. Nothing observed so far has required the notion of this distinction in order to be explained. Not really. This distinction is used in explanations, but maybe this is a question of habit, such as to explain the notion of colour through the example of blue. But blue is not the colour of water or air. And sanity is not a quality of men. If a distinction is not required to explain a difference, then its articulation can only be attributed to an act of will. Maybe will is simply that - unnecessary distinctions.
From the necessary, from in the light, the observed, in its inherent fashion, is articulating to the observer a response.
