Wei Wu Wei - 'not two'

There is no cogniser apart from the 'thing' cognised;
there is no 'thing' cognised apart from the cogniser of it.
But the 'cogniser' is only an act of cognition (a cognising),
of which the 'thing' cognised is the counterpart.
Therefore the 'cogniser' and the 'cognised' are not different, 'not two':
they can only be the 'function of cognising',
the functional aspect of pure potentiality, which,
as such, has no phenomenal or objective existence
apart from its manifestation as cogniser-and-cognised.
The observer cannot observe the observer.

and, as J.Krishnamurti says
