The seen-world is taken for granted
in much the same way as our consciousness itself,
which seems to us omniscient, omnipresent
and, to all intents and purposes, omnipotent.
We may doubt our memory, thought and feeling,
but our consciousness can never be so called in to question.
Strangely enough, neither could our consciousness
ever be credited with causal powers.
The polar nature of the seen-world,
to take but a single example,
should never be laid at the door of our consciousness.
Polarity is, on the contrary, inherent in
the things of the seen-world
and the possibility that the one
may be the product of the other
should not trouble… our consciousness!
