i'm not sure i understand how what you are saying is different from what i am saying?Originally Posted by onemoretime
what is the difference between the object and its essential nature? is its essential nature not the object itself?
it would seem that the object and the essential nature are always the same. just like you can't ever not "be yourself", even though people like to say "be yourself". you are always being yourself.
what data point A needs? i am not sure what you mean. as in what is needed to make it "whole"?Si anchors Ne by providing categories. Without those categories, there is no way of knowing what data point A already needs. Se anchors Ni by paying attention to detail. Without that detail, there is no way to understand the essential distinction between things, and thus no way to determine the true essence.
it seems to me that Se data points indicate endings and beginnings for Ni to work with. time spans. processes. becomings. is this what you mean?
i think mostly i am confused by the differentiation of an object and its "essence".
