I am not entirely absorbed in the object that I have an intention towards.  There's something else there, a not.   

When I act, I'm not simply allowing my urges to gratify themselves - even if I do this, there's some type of reflexivity involved - another negativity.

These are the basic facts of freedom, and conversation about them can get very abstract  

But this is only one half, or even one small corner, of the discussion about deontology.
