"Focusing our experience gaze on our psychic life necessarily takes places as reflection, as a turning about of a glance which had previously been directed elsewhere, Every manner in which we occupy ourselves with any real or ideal objects … Through reflection, instead of grasping the matter straight-out - the values, goals, and instrumetatilities - we grasp the corresponding subjective experiences in which we become ‘conscious’ of them, in which (in the broadest sense) they ‘appear’. For this reason, they are called ‘phenomena’."
- Edmund Husserl, in 'Phenomenology'
