Charles Olson: "what really matters: that a thing, any thing, impinges on us by a more important fact, its self-existence, without reference to any other thing, in short, the very character of it which calls our attention to it, which wants us to know more about it, its particularity. This is what we are confronted by, not the thing's 'class,' any hierarchy, of quality or quantity, but the thing itself, and its relevance to ourselves who are the experience of it (whatever it may mean to someone else . . .).
That's what it's like to come out of the tunnel into Tunnel View: there it is, the valley in all of its particularity, in its self-existence, impinging itself on us . . .
