Exactly. You know this prior to experience. You didn't learn it from observing the world. What does that tell you? The self is the context for the whole thing. When you know about the Law, you are knowing Yourself.

As you observe a thing, you-as-subject are observing you-as-object.

What else would indetermin that which is ?
What but the world...to be what to be.
Indeterminism...is for knowledge (our) not for Being...and rightfully so...
...how else but the world to know itself, to compute itself, to be itself ?

You can't see the self-as-subject as an object because it's the thing that sees. You can try to gain a vantage point on the self-as-subject by looking at an objective map of everything. But you'll find that it's not on the map. Beware the assumption that this means it doesn't exist.

Recognition of the Subject is in the sentence: "I am."

...SUBSTANCE, that which IS, in the becoming of itself, "ITSELFS" itself, what else ???
Substance is the self. Law mediates subject and object. There's no other way to speak but to surrender to Law. Law is the means to accomplish separation. Law is the grand companion of awareness. Only through Law could the separation exist... this separation is awareness.

As always... thanks.
