"Pause: the action of the world on the eye is to print itself there and at the same time to fall away. Eye, remember, neither records, nor can be said to see, the world. It as much 'regards' its environment, the pool building, as a marble regards my regarding it.
"Now we see the sad eye arrived at a central position because the building has compelled it there."
