And, while, myself as created through me, for this reason as in basic terms based upon me. I n brief, it unites the passivity of the came upon factor with the production ex nihilo of the causa SU1� yet causa represents me as subjectivity and sui me as exterior obj ect. Me, ultimately, as present on the earth, that's, as a component of a finite process that confers its shape upon the program. eventually, me with the depths of an inexhaustible subject. Myself as ahead of being infinitely appraised, with the fashion of being of a stone or of bronze or of colours. Reciprocally whatever Hegel thoroughly overlooks the realm in its overall opacity, as though it have been saved in being by means of a unfastened selection that will be me myself. therefore Hegel's formulation that "the distinction is abolished, and so on. " is inaccurate. yet instead of the stone turning into con­ sciousness and attention stone, exteriority is internalized even whereas remammg extenonty.
