The experiencer forgets his nature

The individual, the subject, the experiencer forgets his nature, for it is overshadowed by the object of perception. The consciousness has identified with the object to the exclusion of the subject. The reader should think about this now while reading these words. Are you aware of the fact that you are experiencing these words, or are you identifying completely with these words?
