whereby an object, act or procedure
is used, acted on or performed in such a way that the very nature of the object, act or procedure
is inherently utilized.
Kramer's (from Seinfeld) coffee table book
about coffee tables is autoreflexive. The fact that Kramer's book
has fold out legs and can be used as a coffee table itself
is another degree of autoreflexion. Woody Allen's Hollywood Ending, a movie about the making of a movie, is also autoreflexive.
