It points to the idea that the self is not separate from the external world, but is deeply connected to it. This means that when we observe something, we are also being observed, and our own perceptions and interpretations shape the way we experience the world. In this way, we can see that our inner and outer worlds are intimately connected, and that our own thoughts, feelings, and actions have a direct impact on our experience of the world. This understanding can help us become more aware of our own inner states, as well as the external environment, and can lead to greater self-awareness and insight. ![cyberpunk dreaming by bobby zeik and bill sienkiewicz and david mack and dave mckean ](https://lexica-serve-encoded-images.sharif.workers.dev/md/036f2303-9492-41d7-acfc-83d4f56187c0)
