To become conscious of something that is not conscientiousness itself would mean that consciousness would have to interact with that which it is not. How can an interaction take place between two completely different things? If we are conscious of something we can only be conscious of it if it appears in consciousness itself. If we are not conscious of something, we can't know if it exists. To say we can't know if it exists is the same as saying it's non-existent. If the knowledge of an object only occurs during consciousness of that object then the object can't have it's own individuality. If we can't say it existed before we are conscious of it, and we can't say it exists after we are conscious of it, we can't impart individual existence to it as we can't know it until we know it. Thus consciousness/subjectivity and objectivity are in fact the same thing. There is no duality of subject and object as neither can exist without the other. Why subjectivity an objectivity appear to be two different things rooted in duality will be taken up later.
