The 'self' of a person is that which observes the material and the immaterial space times. Observing a unit in the material space time the 'self' observes a reflection of that unit in the immaterial space time and it superimposes that reflection upon the material unit. The 'self' can also observe units or concepts in the memory which is located in the immaterial world as spatial or temporal units. The observer measures magnitudes and organizations of units which are groups of the laws of nature. It also measures velocity of changes in those units or among them. As such the 'self' is a unit of measurement created by the limit of 'I', which is the Nothingness and which cannot be oberved. The limit 'I' limits an interval of flowing time and creates a unit of standing time 'now'. The unit 'now' can vary and this influences observer's consciousness of magnitudes and velocities of change of that which the 'self' observes. As Nothingness the 'I' limits any medium and creates a unit of existence of which the 'self' can be conscious. By excluding senses and memory the 'self' can be observed as 'something' located in the 'now' and which is independent of the past or the future.

Expansion needed[edit]

This article is far too cursory for such an important topic. I've added some possible sources under Self#Further reading; please feel free to add further sources and especially draw on these to expand the article. hgilbert (talk) 13:28, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Questions on 'self'.[edit]

Re; Discussion ‘self’. Expansion needed 28/1/2011 I agree. The article is cursory, but there are many more important topics to be discussed before the ‘self’ can be fully and easily understood. I propose that you ask questions of interest to you relating to the ‘self’ and I shall try to answer them. KK ( (talk) 13:03, 8 March 2011 (UTC))

The perfect 'self'.[edit]

All ‘self’ consist of two parts, one is the limit of Nothingness of the observer’s I and the other is an interval of standing time ‘now’. When the interval ‘now’ is a point of time, the two elements of the 'self', I and ’now’, are the identity in Nothingness. The difference between the two does not exist so that the three elements are also the identity of Nothingness. The trinity is subject to the duality of existence non-existence because it exists, as the 'self' consciousness of the observer. The consciousness is observed by the existing ‘self’ so that the non-existing ‘self’ does not exist. There is no change within the trinity but there is a difference between the non-existence ‘0’ of the ‘self’ and the existence ‘1’ of the same ‘self’. When the observer is conscious he observes the duality of the ‘self’, as his consciousness, and the Nothingness. By observing the ‘self’ he repeats the unit now’ of his ‘self’ and by that he creates plurality of 2 identical units ‘now’, one of them the past and the other the current ‘now’. There is a difference between the static ‘self’ and the two units of ‘now’, each a 1/2 of the original ‘1’. The observer himself does not change but he is motivated by the difference between himself and that which he observes. The imbalance is a permanent state of motivation for change. The plurality of parts of the original static self, which is ‘1’, grows as 2 to power ‘n’ and the parts change in magnitude as 1/2 to power ‘n’ for all ‘n’ in (0<n<oo).

Definition = Self[edit]

Self is all about what I define. Defining is a result of mind functions. Can be translated into words/code.

Myself is the definition of me (self centered definition). Pen, car, chair dog, eat and Wikipedia are definitions. Each has a self.

A definition (self) has:

1. Name (example: CAT is the name of the self)
2. Body/Form (example: Mental picture of the Cat - attributes & behavior)
(Note: Everything we  
1.see, 2.hear, 3.smell, 4.taste, 5.touch and 6.think
are mind definitions of/for six sensors.)

Abhidhamma, the pinnacle of Buddhist scripture describes the above as Nāma (Name) and Rūpa (Body/picture).

Also "Self limits within a boundary" from a system perspective. Inside elements are subjects and outside elements are objects.

Artificial intelligence[edit]

Self Awareness = awareness of self/definition is a defining process.

If sciousness is knowledge, consciousness is collective knowledge. Knowledge = ñana/Jnana means birth/generate in Buddhism is mind generation. Vijñāna=vi+ñana means atomic births of mind.

Prof. Lakshan Bandara says "There is so much [[Buddhism], the study of mind along with Biblical concepts and Artificial intelligence can benefit from each-other by deep research".

Self Awareness[edit]
Did God create mind or my thinking create God? 
Is evolution part of creation or creation part of evolution?
How does self/definition lead in both ways?

Self awareness - the answer.[edit]

Mind is the duality of the observer (self) and the memory of the observer. You cannot create the perfect mind because you are a part of that mind and the result of motivation and the laws of nature. Motivation as cause precedes effect. The dynamism manifests itself as one directionally flowing time. Creation is the result of change of a unit ‘from-to’. The change occurs between two units ‘now’ in the space of (0<1), where ‘0’ is the ‘from’ and ‘1’ is the ‘to’. The ‘1’ is the newly created unit. The space (0<1) contains evolution as the tool of creation. KK ( (talk) 10:28, 23 November 2012 (UTC))
