The look which the eyes manifest, no matter what kind of eyes they are, is a pure reference to myself. What I apprehend immediately when I hear the branches crackling behind me is not that there is someone there; it is that I am vulnerable, that I have a body which can be hurt, that I occupy a place and that I cannot in any case escape from the space in which I am without defense…

-Being and Nothingness by Jean-Paul Sartre

I have that book! I haven't started reading it though. Lol

Haha. I borrowed it from the library! It's really good! Surprisingly so, since I expected it to be pretentiously wordy in that verbose sort of way.

Have you finished reading it? How long did you take? It's ridiculously thick lol.

Yea. 2 nights? Lol. I didn't read the whole thing, just picked certain chapters, like Bad Faith, The Look, among others.
