|World, philosophy: here we are concerned about what is counted as a world. If the world is conceived as a totality of objects, states, processes and their relations, as well as the totality of actions and thoughts, no statements are possible about the world which are not circular. See also universe, ontology, totality, whole, outer/inner, paradoxes, circularity._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Definition Environment/J. von Uexküll/Radner: the factors that affect the animal. Their number and shared identity is determined by the construction plan of the animal - Definition inner world/J. v Uexküll/Radner: consists of the factors of the environment caused by the effects of the nervous system. These effects are also backed up and controlled by the construction plan.
E.g. the hetero-phenomenological problem of color blindness (or that someone perceives two colors where we only see one) is essentially an environmental problem._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
