Reflexive Self-Consciousness, which for convenience we abbreviate to “resec”, is a state of transcendent self-awareness which confers upon the beings who attain it certain powers of adequate response and capacities of stimulus assimilation. These powers man must attain or perish from the earth as unfit for the next necessary step in the evolution of consciousness.
In the act of reflexive self-consciousness there is a re-statement of the fact that consciousness is consciousness, not only at the end of an act, but in each moment of consciousness. There is a continuous return or reflexive movement, a bending or turning back upon itself of consciousness during action, such that at no moment does consciousness fall into identification with its objects to the point of losing awareness of its own free essence. Not losing its self-awareness in object-identification, consciousness remains self-immersed in its own free essence.
