is other and entering into a deep engagement with what is other through
this act of imagination.

the teacup.
It is an ethical act. It is radical perspective if we have a relation to
the imaginal informed by empirical notions of some phenomena as objective
and real and other phenomena are subjective and private. Kobito Theory is
enacting a different ethical focus and approach to the other [material and
