Ergo Proxy:
(dubbed dialogue)
From the perspective of others I am part of the world, but when I observe the world from my perspective I am nowhere to be found. To observe is to create perspective. I can never cease to be the point of origin from my perspective. I observe that which is not myself. This is the first principle to find.
(subtitle dialogue)
In others' eyes, I am part of the world. But when I look out at the world from my own vantage point, I am not in it. What I see is the world. As an observer, I am the point of view that creates the world. I can't belong to the world. In principle, we can say that it's the truth.

(dubbed dialogue)
I am nobody. Even if I was somebody, I am beyond your comprehension. And even if you could, you wouldn't have the tools to express that knowledge. I do not belong to the world. That is the limit, the boundary between all and self.
(subtitle dialogue)
Even if I was someone, people couldn't comprehend me. And even if they could, they wouldn't be able to communicate it to those around them. I do not belong to the world. That is the world's limit, the boundary between the world and the self.

(dubbed dialogue)
Feel the pounding in your chest as the pulse quickens. It belongs to no one else. It is yours and mine. It is the foundation of our truth, proof that we belong in this world, that we are of this world. Follow your instincts. You'll find the answers you seek inside.
(subtitle dialogue)
Remember. You can feel it if you hold your hand against your chest. It belongs to no one. It's our pulse, yours and mine. This is what brings us to the truth. It's what proves that we are the very world itself. Follow your instincts. The answer is already there.
