|Separation of oneself and others
To begin with, it is necessary to think of principle of recognition. What is recognition?
“Man who recognizes” and “Object” are necessary to recognize. Simply stated,
both oneself and others are needed.
All that is recognized by us is other. We can’t recognize ourselves. Suppose,
look for yourself. You can’t find yourself anywhere. There may be someone
who regards himself as body, but it is not true. Thinking calmly where
you are on the body, you can’t find yourself anywhere.
Brain is not yourself. Chest is not yourself. Though these are your body,
these are not yourself. Thinking calmly, you can understand it.
Therefore, recognition inevitably needs separation of oneself and others. Our world is the result of recognition from one consciousness to the other, after separating our consciousness into two directions of oneself and others
In addition, both of two kinds of senses of oneself and others are senses
of yourself. As recognition image can’t be generated without separation,
consciousness is separated into two categories.
