What is ‘I’? The dictionary definition says that it is a pronounce referring to the speaking ‘Self’. Then, what is ‘Self’? It also forms pronounce that refers to ‘oneself’. Subsequently, anything can be a ‘Self’. A cup can refer it’self’ as such, a bird can refer it’self’ as such, any human can also refer to one’self’ as such. Artists, of course, are them’selves’.

At the same time, it recognizes the existence of oneself.
