R. Buckminster Fuller's Synergetics
100.010 Awareness of the Child: The simplest descriptions are those expressed by only one word. The one word alone that describes the experience "life" is "awareness." Awareness requires an otherness of which the observer can be aware. The communication of awareness is both subjective and objective, from passive to active, from otherness to self, from self to otherness.
Awareness = self + otherness
Awareness = observer + observed
100.011 Awareness is the otherness saying to the observer, "See Me." Awareness is the observer saying to self, "I see the otherness." Otherness induces awareness of self. Awareness is always otherness inductive. The total complex of otherness is the environment.
100.012 Universe to each must be
All that is, including me.
Environment in turn must be
All that is, excepting me.
