There are two views of the body: The body that is for me and the body that is for others. This duality is the result of occupying space, even as a fragment, which reveals each being as a systematic continuity beginning from itself and ending in itself. It is a circle within a circle, the domain that consciousness falls into as being and as self. By being, consciousness cannot escape its own presence, yet, as self, it can journey from its own objectivity into an animated and complex caricature of its existential character; a self-producing phenomenon of idealistic potentialities seeking the prosperous finality of its own experiential imagination. Eventually the self reaches the boundaries of its own finitude, the limited scope of self-consciousness, and is thrust back into the world and freed from the provocative yearnings of its hidden desires.
