Wei Wu Wei - Seeing

How CAN THERE be a 'seeing'? Surely the 'seeing' is
false: the object is not over there, it is at home 'here'. I am
it, it is I. How, then, can I 'see' it? There is no object there:
therefore there cannot be any subject here.
All my eye! My eye and whatever lies behind it.
Once More
The conclusion is simple and evident. There is no
one to 'see' and no 'thing' to be 'seen'; the 'seen' is the
'see-er' and the 'see-er' is the 'seen', and that is a definition
of noumenon. This applies to each of the senses by means
of which phenomena are cognised.
'Noumenon' has no more existence than 'phenomena'
since each is merely a concept of divided 'mind', itself the
sixth sense, interpreter of its fellows. And all that each is is
neither 'there' nor 'here' nor any 'where'.
No name, nor any description, can ever be given to
what remains, for that is by definition no object, because as
ultimate subjectivity it could not see itself which is therefore
no 'thing' other than objectified as every 'thing', i.e., all
Therefore 'it' is ultimate and absolute phenomenal
absence and the absence of that concept of 'absence', which
is absolute presence.

Note: Phenomena are noumenon objectifying itself, or Noumenon is
subject objectifying itself as phenomena.
