It starts with the paradoxon: the human as a constitutive part of the whole, who must be separated from the world if he is able to perceive objectively. Aporia, tautology – entity becomes difference: overcome the concept of identity. The theorie of self-referential systems draw the line between the inside and outside. We are non-trivial systems – unpredictable. What seems to be an entity is constituting itself in the dissociation from its environment. Everything is connected, nothing is without context. Theoretical foundations are operations with the shaping moment of differentiation. You have to decide which differentiation you reach at the beginning; have to find your way in the balance of system and environment, which emerges from unlimited actions. Orientation by recognizing yours, that is different from others. Meanings are created self-referentially in the brain. Objectivity is impossible.
Every cognition is an observation of own operations. Observation and autopoiesis are connected intrinsically. In observing we are deciding on a differentiation; we are schematising in the wish for a reduction of the world complexity. A process of recursion – an attempt to define yourself. An observation of the second order. Observe yourself while observing – self-reflection, self-evaluation. Dual contingency. Recognizing alternatives. Adjusting attitude. Alternating influence. Reciprocal observation. Social system. Communication: information, message, grasp. Interaction between the complexity of two systems that cannot be calculated or controlled. Empathy – rejection, acceptation, participation, position. Search clarity, identity in social impacts: mistake that is causing excessive demand – lost in latitude.
