What we see is what “solicits” itself and makes itself available to us. It is a welcoming, a waving in, that calls us forward and jolts our senses. In turn, we acknowledge the-object-for-us. It is the focus of our attention and turns into an “object of privilege.” It’s brought out of the depths of insignificance, of invisibility, and made visible purely by our acceptance of it. In turn, we are an object-for-the-object as we fall into its presence and become the locus of its existence. One cannot be without the other and being would not exist if there were nothing outside of it; if it couldn’t point toward the emptiness and say “nothing is there.”
