The mind loves the unknown. It loves images
whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of
the mind itself is unknown.

If the dream is a translation of waking life,

What is a television apparatus to man, who has
only to shut his eyes to see the most
inaccessible regions of the seen and the never
seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce
through walls and cause all the planetary
Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.
Salvador Dali. Mae West 1935, Oil on Canvas.

Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only
what it considers to be shackles limiting our
vision.
