Is the self the kind of thing that can be used to evaluate its own powers?
Would such a thing as self be able to determine if it had free will?
Is it able to split itself into two parts…....a seer and a seen?
Can a microscope or a telescope observe their own machinery?

Oh freddled gruntbuggly? thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.
Groop I implore thee,my foonting turlingdromes
And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon
see if I don’t!

What a good paradox my friend.Thus it only yourself that can evaluate yourself,if you can either see yourself doing it,or not,it totally differs on the actual action unless the mind does not hinders the process and stuff.You have the ability to bend the rules with your mind as i can but neither of us does it because the state we are now.

I had a similar take on it, except that I thought it veered a little more toward mind numbing drivel which is torturous to the ears when read aloud - along the lines of Vogon poetry. 


Is the body the kind of thing that can be used to repair itself?
Would such a thing as body be able to mend if it had an injury?
Is it able to split itself into two parts…....a repairer and a repaired?
Can a microscope or a telescope repair their own machinery?
