The first direction of perception (maybe point of consciousness would be better), is awareness of self. Not self-awareness, but awareness of the self as being unique; seeing that I am not just a part of. The best example I can give is when I was a very young child I saw everything from part of a family. I looked at everyone and everything from being a part of a family group. As I got older, I started to see things from the point of being an individual.
That is not a very good example, but it is the best I can do. The individual is looking through the eyes of discovering his separateness.
Today will be very short because I am ill.
