Exterior/interior, outside/inside (philosophy): the distinction is important in connection with statements. If the statement is within a system, it can be problematic to make an assertion about the system with that statement. See also circularity, self-reference, paradoxes, type theory, external questions.

Holz I 74
Identity/Leibniz/Holz: the identity of the finite with itself is formally not to be distinguished from the identity of the infinite whole with itself.
Exterior/outside/whole/Leibniz: On the other hand, if there were an infinite mind, it must be outside the whole, in order to be able to grasp it at the same time. But with this, the whole would not be the whole thing anymore.
It is a priori true that the whole cannot be imaged isotropically.
Hence the boundary concept of the infinite mind, a heuristic fiction, remains a heuristic analogy to finite reason.
