camera obscura

“Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow.

Carl Jung called this his shadow work. He said we never see others.
Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them.
Shadows. Projections. Our associations.

The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room
and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight.

The camera obscura.

Not the exact image, but everything reversed or upside down.”
― Chuck Palahniuk

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
