“Self” is a linguistic repository for the precipitates of the process referred to by the word “Self”: Self. That sentence eats its own tail–yet this process of digesting structure is exactly what is being referred to. A process which digests structure shits out a transformed structure. The transformed structure being shit out is all the linguistic statements concerning “Self”, these included, while the assumed background process doing the chewing and digesting and defecating is the referred-to, actually-existing process itself, outside of and beyond words. Understanding these words amounts to an experiencing of the archetype of Self–or at least a side of it–but yet that is it. Uroboros.
