Reality And Appearance

When the one reality becomes self-conscious, it necessarily appears to itself as other, many, extended and enduring; thus as many discrete objects, including some individual subjects, coexisting in a spatiotemporal realm. Each psychophysical organism is simultaneously the one self-conscious reality and one of many individual subjects. Unconscious organisms are intermediate between inanimate objects and conscious organisms.

A spatiotemporal realm of objects none of which is a subject is a pre- or post-conscious state of reality. A material object external to consciousness is not necessarily an object of consciousness or vice versa. The latter also include abstractions, like concepts and possibilities.
