Losing Self-Consciousness To An-Other: The aim of self-consciousness is to see-itself-in-itself-in-an-Other. It does so by negating the Other and inserting itself in its place. It seeks to make the world its own; to become both the benefactor of its spirit and the beneficiary of the same. It thereby is lost in its own lustful gaze and, finally, does not show from itself, but negates itself as it comes to realize that it cannot shape the world in its own image, that it is not the “universal,” but is its own law that turns against its own desires into a self-relating, self-less, being lost to a world of selfishness through conformity in an environment other than its own making.
