There is an essential difference between pure being and the “I” of being. This comes about once sense certainty has resolved into immediate knowledge; once it “proposes” itself to being-in-the-world and loses itself in that world. When sense certainty takes its immediate experience as a knowing, once it recognizes a “this” or “that” it reflects into a world of reflection, a world that is a mirror unto itself, an infinite chain of time and space that unravels before spirit and wraps itself around it in its immediacy of itself as an object of mediation.
