This book shows two mirrors of our time seen from a certain timeless point of view.
Shown in the mirror, Yumee feels of love greater than the self of her life is. She moves in to the house of a Western man with her daughter to live with him. This great, passionate beginning seems straightforward, even ordinary at first glance. However, the beginning would not begin the present. It evolves into the past as if the present were drawn to its source: the self on the horns of a dilemma. The reason for that is the ground for the first chapter.
Chapter I lays out a general observation of the spirit and gathers the main characters as they are. They are actually involved with either Yumee or her lover, particularly his good old friend, an Asian man who observes his relationship with Yumee, not just by virtue of his friendship, but also because of his special interest in the truth at the point of contact between the self of Western man and that of Asian soul. The chapter II shows a specific nature of the difference and similitude of the Self: the fusion of a woman's "I" and that of men as "the communication problem." Finally, in the chapter III, the characters are called to speak of the self of unsublimated emotions and demonstrate its relation to the theme, the Self in the psychology of negation in terms of their observations and evaluations.
