Synopsis:
  • The natural world is construed by an infinite self
  • Self = primordial action of the intellect that originates the individual selves
  • The Non-self (the natural world) is created by the Self as a challenge to itself
  • The Self continuously confronts the non-Self, which it has created, and their interaction defines each
  • The Self creates the Non-self as a field in which to operate, and thus needs the Non-self to appear an independent reality
  • The original Self was not conscious, but the selves produced by this interaction become conscious
