Golden Blindness

‘I cannot see myself’ was one of the statements that surfaced while Mille kalsmose was under hypnosis. Both in a physiological sense as Kalsmose entered an altered state of mind, but also from a philosophical or even spiritual point of view. If you cannot see yourself, the task of finding out who you are becomes a both demanding and meticulous task. You dig your way through years of material, unravelling your identity in the same way that an archeologist excavates the past or a scholar interprets a poem. This type of blindness does not only bring your own being into question, but also the world and how it appears.
