Distinction/observation/Luhmann: peculiar asymmetry: it does not work without two sides, it does not go without their unit, but it only works on one side and not at the same time on the other side - would both sides be present at the same time, there would be no difference anymore. Transcendental philosophy/Kant/Luhmann: introduces it through the need for asymmetry: the conditions of empirical knowledge cannot be empirical conditions by themselves. - E.g. If you think about, that the seller must be seen business and not morally, you cannot ask the same time, what is the unity of the distinction between morality and business. - You cannot observe yourself in the moment of observation as someone who handles the distinction. - A reflection of the distinction is quite possible, but by another distinction. - E.g. we speak now of distinctions - but against a background of things that are not differentiated.

Observation/Luhmann: E.g. The economy observes by means of prices the customers and the competition. - Second order observation: E.g. One can observe a shift of the blind spot.
