Violent action ensues.

In Star Control II, the Mycon divide everything in the universe up into "Juffo-Wup," "Non," and "Void." More information is available about it here. My question is this: this concept of everything being divided into an autistic self-world, the hostile outside, and nothing at all— also explored in Philip K. Dick's "Null-O"— seems like a motif. Does it have a name? Where else is it explored?
