Three Steps of Self-knowledge

“Man knows what pain is. He has the experience of pain. From early childhood traumas to experiencing severe injuries, and most importantly, – experience of psychological pain, existential experience of trauma and awareness of abuse. When a person causes someone pain, he knows what is going through Another, these bodily and mental feelings are known to him. Committing violence against Another, he is himself experiencing violence, objectifying it in Another, and at the same time sharing it between Themselves and Another. One may recall that the Hunter and Victim are linked in the act murder. Therefore, the present suicide – the murder of the Other.
In this light, we can consider the Three Steps of Self-knowledge as the gradual killing of Another in Ourselves. Where the main suicide – it is the murder of the “Other” as an idea.”
