(did i write more about this elsewhere?) it is so profound and was one of my first revelations.

Consciousness is the thing and isn’t the thing st the same time

If I observe my hand, I am both the hand being observed as well as the observation of the hand (not the hand)

That is to say, consciousness is the sandwich of the ‘is’ and ‘isn’t’.

Am I that which I look at, or am I not that which I look at? Am I both? Or neither? Am I both and neither?

terrifying, and makes reality logically paper thin. or makes me believe reality to be paper thin. ref: depersonalization / derealization.

visual snow could be the imperfect sandwiching of this.
