Open peer commentary on the article “The World of Screen Creatures” by Bin Liu. Abstract: I show that the observation of the objects of the observer-dependent world - that by virtue of which they are given - is not itself given as another object. The peculiarity of observation is that it is irreducible to either an object or an abstract concept. We see the content of the observation, but we do not see the observation itself, it is not an object or an object for us. Therefore, we can apply the category of “virtuality” to the observation itself, as well as to the observer.
