Grzegorz Wróblewski

Paradox attracts perplexity.  We’ve been fretting the relationship between blindness and insight at least since blind Homer.  But that makes blindness as sight a starting point rather than an ending point for thought.  So when Grzegorz Wróblewski observes that “When I close my eyes, I can see much more clearly” (61), we ought to expect — we ought to be looking for — something to follow.  What follows is: “I can’t compare this to anything.”  Our senses all are comparative: louder or softer noise, rougher or smoother to the touch, etc.  So only the absence of perception could signify the Absolute, or Nothing.
