5. First, notice the simple and highly energetic condition of being aware of something. Make it a cat, if oneis nearby, or your own shoe if you are wearing one, or any object; notice the action of being aware of it..
Second, conceive a memory of that experience in the form of a mental representation of the cat or object. This is a first order abstraction, taking the raw experience out of its place in time and carrying it forward with the ownerís attention. You are a viewer; you see a picture of the cat or whatever you just chose to look at. Itís not an experience of the direct sort ñ youíre experiencing looking at an image in a different ìspaceî or way than you were looking at the object. The experience is abstracted into a different kind of experience.
