Subjects and objects..
Time's gloss must still remain.
For when we gaze into it what we behold are mirrors.
(Hilmi Yavuz.Turkish poet)
"I,myself" says..Schopenhauer.." know myself through these two aspects.I know myself as body,something that has a certain size and shape,covering space in environment,continuity in time and an object that exist within cause-effect connection with other objects.
But at the same time I know myself also as a subject that feels and acts,desires and chases its desires,a strugling creature,ask with one word,a subject that wills freely.
Deep in my conscious,this spiritual existence opens itself to me beyond the limitations of time and environment and beyond cause and effect network.It is known by me precisely and within deep privacy more than any other things and I feel it constantly and concretely.But it is a fact that knowing myself is related to each other through certain aspects.
This body of mine,this object in the environment,through some aspects are same and one with my spiritual existence.In my ego I evaluate as objects and subjects is united and as a result I see deep in my conscious dawn is breaking.Will is the reality behind the sense perceptions.." Do you know yourself??
At least we still have hope:
"Like a dark rose lying in ambush
Both faded and fresh..."
