We now have a gap between description and reality......"yes. yes and yes again"

        It was a good post. Sometrhing that had to be dealt with in first or third person, between objects. SOmething that required writing......Maybe this is what Harman meant with his "zero-person" perspective. The zero-person stance “refers to the essence or intrinsic nature of any entity apart from any access we might have to it” (ZP, 253). “Objects must be granted zero-person reality that can only be translated into descriptive terms of the first or third person kind”.

come again?

... this changes the nature of the problem, which once you get used to it is no problem at all...
