“No object is conceivable without there being multiple intentive mental processes . . . processes in which “it,” the object, is attended to as an identical object and yet in an [intellectually intuitive] different mode.” (Husserl, Ideas 1, Section 131)
“If there is, for me a cube with six equal sides, and if I can link up with the object, this is not because I constitute it from the inside: it is because I delve into the thickness of the world by perceptual experience.” 237.
You see all sides of the cube because your body moves through space.
All perception happens because of a body
All perception is also a perception of the body
Husserl’s imaginative engagement couldn’t happen without embodied perception.
This invisible calls us (seduces us) into a deeper relationship with the world.
Rediscover the world, rediscover the self
“we shall need to reawaken our experience of the world as it appears to us in so far as we perceive the world through our body, and in so far we perceive the world with our body. But by this remaking contact with the body and the world, we shall also rediscover ourself, since, perceiving as we do with our body, the body is a natural self and, is it were, the subject of perception.” 239
