In the tank

This issue: the act of “Looking at an object in a tank full of black ink”: I have no idea what the object is.  Of what to measure it against.   Even if it is there at all.  The only thing I see is the reflection present in the black wafer of glass – the icy node of my looking face.  There it is, me, my face.  So, this thing, is that the object in the tank in its essence?  Only me.
