The reason that a Mobius strip gives one a strange sensation is that, conceptually, the distinction between “front and back” which ought to be clear has become ambiguous and vague; this phenomenon, however, can also occur with other dualities such as “inside and outside”, “up and down” and “light and dark” … Yet this violation of logic still permits us to say that such a world is formed by “representational truth”

The small devil wondering, “Am I inside or outside the bottle” is concerned with this kind of “representational truth”.
