Aphorism #2

What we are seeking after, whether in philosophy, literature, poetry, or film, when we are not seeking merely information or entertainment, is something which causes us to say: “Now this is the real shit.”

    This is kind of like Borges’s comment on aesthetics:

    “Music, states of happiness, mythology, faces belabored by time, certain twilights and certain places try to tell us something, or have said something we should not have missed, or are about to say something; this imminence of a revelation which does not occur is, perhaps, the aesthetic phenomenon.”
