capital reflex #27

    We always imagine the Real as something we face on. We think of ourselves always as facing the Real. Well, there is no face-to-face. There is no objectivity. Nor any subjectivity either: a twofold illusion. Since consciousness is an integral part of the world and the world is an integral part of consciousness, I think it and it thinks me. One need only reflect that even if objects exist outside of us, we can know absolutely nothing of their objective reality. For things are given to us only through our representation. To believe that these representations and sensations are determined by external objects is a further representation.” Jean Baudrillard, em On the World in Its Profound Illusoriness
