The so called outline of any kind of “thing” seems to me to be nothing more than a concept created by the observer of that “thing”. Since everything around us is just a creative flow of energy transforming from “one” into “another”, so then, there is no “one” or the “other”, just IT. So in the same sense there is no separate “thing” outside of us, but instead anything we make is merely an extension of us, no matter how foreign that something appears to be.
