Materialism provides no such focussing tool.
I would call that tool a self, primitive though it may be.
You really should study computer science, as the self is a solved
problem. Bot the 3p-self, and the non nameable 1p-self.
Did you mean "both the 3p-self and the non-nameable 1p-self"? How
does the 1p-self name itself? Can the the non-nameable 1p-self be
approximately named with an integration of an uncountable set of names?
