“that which stands before” by titus toledo
“The act of reflecting is the act of making explicit what is already there in consciousness, and this is the so-called act of creating. For, the act of making explicit by reflection is to make what is made explicit stand before consciousness as if it were different from, or other than, the reflecting consciousness. The object is not that which stands over against the subject (Gegenstand) but ‘that which stands before the subject'”
–from “Phenomenology & Indian Philosophy” by D. P. Chattopadhyaya, Lester Embree, Jitendranath Mohanty, 1992
