John,


> Who is self-referencing, or even acknowledging self-reference?



Gödel and All. It is a major discovery of the 20th century: a  
completely clear notion of third person self-reference.

A first person self-reference theory follows naturally, accepting  
Theaetetus' definition of knowledge. The first person self, like the  
big one, has really no name. No identity card, nor even a body.   
Paradoxes and even shit happens when we name them.

Each of the 8 hypostases (or of the 16, ...) can be seen as a notion  
of self-reference, but acting on different facet of the arithmetical  
reality. There are nameable selves and unnameable one, and they obey  
to different logics. More later.

I wish you the best,

Bruno
