Because you're always already involved in the world? Subject/object distinction is just fucking you up.
"The world is not an object such that I have in my possession the law of its making; it is the natural setting of, and field for, all my thoughts and all my explicit perceptions. Truth does not 'inhabit' only 'the inner man', or more accurately, there is no inner man, man is in the world, and only in the world does he know himself." -Merleau-Ponty
ps: I know you weren't seriously asking this but just so you know, this thing isn't that much of a philosophical problem nowadays...
As for Sator I find him to be quite knowledgeable in the arcane minutiae of tailoring but he usually fails when trying to articulate great principles because he's a little too psychorigid.
