Once turned into an object or thing, a “category” of species emerges that self-identifies as such. Being negates its own self, loses its consciousness to a world defined by abstract otherness, becomes a point on the dial that revolves through participation, and turns into a displaced floating spirit lost to an order of selflessness; a surrendering of the will to a concept of assimilation. In its immediate sense of being outside itself, self-consciousness seeks to expand its own negation and its own self-deprecation by “raising” its awareness of the world and, in so doing, losing sight of its own individuality and being. Its truth keeps changing while its meaning remains static, but continues to take on other forms.
