Separation from Self
The modernity starts with accepting human as subject of perception rather than the object. This means that the person puts himself in the center of his conceptual world and starts learning and interpreting his world through his own conceptualization. To me, the very first thing to learn is myself. I, as the "subject" should first learn and understand me as the "object" and that is the idea that has been reflected in separation from self. I am separating myself from the object which me, to investigate it and learn about. This is the reflection of an effort in self portraying of myself.
