Surroundings - Environment (Whether I am in your eyes)
"I think, therefore I am” put us into a trap of thinking: the rigid opposition of subject and object. But we never actually encounter “object” in our living environment: a glass on the desk, a headlamp bedside the bed and a fire hydrant by the stairs; all things do not present themselves as "objects". Instead, the prerequisite for them to present and reveal as meaningful things is our unfolding and formation of external environment; the integrity of things surrounding us depends on the unfolding of the unique world, thus to construct the environment that we live in.
But the unfolding process of the surrounding world is not subjective. As actors being able to shape the world, the structure of our "World –Unfold” has been limited within the framework of time since the very beginning. Environment is a result for us contributed to by the production of time; time which was mutually produced by “us” and the “environment”. Things surrounding us form a circle ring centering us, while its order not only lays foundation for all our possibilities, but also draws boundaries. We have never been abstract individuals. Instead, we only understand life and the world in "surroundings and situations".
