Configuration of reality corresponding to the perception of the external senses as filtered through the contents of the consciousness. Because the consciousness is an active structure and not merely a passive reflection of “external” reality, the latter appears as a structured “landscape,” and not as a sum of perceptions nor as an isolated structure of the perceptions of the external senses. The e.l. is experienced in the “outward” position of the consciousness, which has as its reference the peripheral, tactile-cenesthesia register (*internal landscape).
