Leon Krings explains the Japanese concept of Kata: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kata

Toshihiko Izutsu mentions in his description of the Zen-Buddhist practice that after you de-subjectify the subject and de-objectify the object, you return to re-objectifying the object and re-subjectifying the subject. If you don't do this returning movement, you stay in one-sided mysticism and you won't have any social or intersubjective connection. It is a paradoxical inter-penetration of unity and opposition.
