You can meet someone in the "it" but they never meet you. In
order for it to be in the "I-thou", I am assuming what you mean by
"meet", there needs to be a mutual unspoken understanding between
the two individuals--an I-Thou. Once you label it, you
undermine the ability to "meet" So you can never "meet" someone
unless they "meet" you.
