N__ing And K___ing
If one considers k___ing a process toward definition and completion, k___ing self directly and in the specious present is an illusion.
If there is any genuine import to being self-aware, therefore, it is distinct from k___ing self.
In eastern religion and philosophy, which are essentially the same, the futility of any final k___ing self is a commonplace, so much so that in the West it is easily overlooked as the keystone of all that follows.
The eye cannot see it self.
If k___ing is seeing, therefore, one can never k___ self.
What is true of k___ing is true of n__ing.
