“First of all, we must dismiss the usual references to problems of hallucination. For they refer to objective phenomena detectable in actual behavior that can be recorded thanks to photographs of faces in anguish at hearing imaginary voices. They would therefore not allow us to really enter into the domains of pure imagination. Nor do I believe that we can apprehend the autonomous activity of the creative imagination through a mixture of true sensations and hallucinations that may be either true or false. The problem for me, I repeat, is not to examine men, but images. And the only images that can be examined phenomenologically are transmissible ones; they are those we receive in successful transmission. And even if the creator of an image were the victim of an hallucination, the image can very well fulfill our desire to imagine as readers, who are not hallucinated.” (174-175)
“But the the causality of smallness stirs all our senses, and an interesting study could be undertaken of the “miniatures” that appeal to each sense. For the sense of taste or smell, the problem might be even more interesting than for the sense of vision, since sight curtails the dramas it witnesses. But a whiff of perfume, or even the slightest odor can create an entire environment in the world of the imagination.” (174)

“I should like to liquidate, as it were, the spectacle complex, which could harden certain values of poetic contemplation.” (190)
