Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.3 ZQ

[Both the ‘thought experiment3H’ and the ‘nature and source of light3H’ could be called the ‘mirror of the world3H’.

The image of a mirror neatly captures both ‘the thought experiment where ‘I choose something’‘ and ‘the experiment where, with a light source, ‘I see something’‘.]

[Perhaps, for the intersection, the scenario should be:

With a light source, I see something.

I realize that I am seeing. Seeing is not part of some ongoing operation. There are two drivers, my neurophysiological potential and the potential of whatever is specular scattering light.]

[The intersection works because ‘the something that specular scatters light2a’ does not really emerge from and situate ‘my neurophysiological capabilities1a’.

It only does so when I, seat of sight3b, commands the situation.

When my command falters, I may ask the question: What am I looking at?]
