Self Before Self: On the Scenic Model of the Early Embodied Self
When consciousness is viewed in a spatially wide perspective, it does not lend itself to understanding through details. A wide picture of consciousness can be compared with a mental scenery that consists of numerous components, layers, and a multiplicity of details, like a mosaic that forms an entity. The aim of this paper is to investigate how the scenic nature of the human mind and the unitary, non- fragmented picture of it derive from infantile development. Instead of a top-down approach, the poorly organized, early forms of consciousness offer better understanding as to why the mind functions as a scenic entity.
