One could say this is a simple conclusion as an entanglement of logic being tripped by it's own shoe laces while making a grand entrance onto the empirical world of surfaces.
One bio-physicist referred to the processing of the physical brain in relation to the mind as one that only sees the outlines of objects in the exterior environment and..if we take that same recognition inwardly toward the Self as seen through "personality" and this being an outline of something else I ask what that something could be.
Ouspensky called what others experience of this something we may be a shadow corresponding to the experiences of Plato's cave dwellers. Gurdjieff used the term "false personality" referring to this term as defining the Self as a self referential database of reactive and binary correspondences without any actual coherence other than by imaging it to be so. Man's singular name is legion, he is not one but many fraught with cross purposes. That leads to how we define the historical world.
A universe fraught with layers of false references, both inward and outward. A good question is better than a good answer in this predicament.
These same referents are known to cause the illusion of time by the utility of comparing one marker to another. There seems to be a buried corpse in our closet that refuses to lie down and play dead. The bone is buried along with the dog that concealed it.
