If we perceive beauty it induces anamnesis, a memory
of a terrific encounter with the Real, a meaningless traumatic hole. Then one
must choose: either captive to trauma or captivated by beauty. If one is
captive then one remembers only the anxiety of that esoteric encounter with the
Real; but, if one is captivated then one is driven by the desire to know and
love, to recollect, to recover Prince’s revelation.
