Every Psyche Has Her Soma

Yes, indeed, and every Soma* has his Psyche. There has never been the one without the other, or the other without the one. A pretty pair of phenomenal counterparts, a very pretty couple of concepts, still imperfectly cognised, particularly the young lady. Otherwise much like all other interdependent complementaries.

But there is one thing odd about them, quite exceptional: they are cognised as one and called a 'self', whereas, like all the others, they are only identical in their mutual negation.

That is what is wrong.
