and for a new moon in libra…

“The existentialist emphasis on commitment which many psycho-analysts credit with broadening the scope and shifting the emphasis of their work suffers many of the same defects, thought they are expressed differently. For both Sartre and the early Heidegger (Being and Time), the unbridgeable distance between self and others gives interpersonal commitment an arbitrary and self-centered quality. I am committed because I choose to be, not because the other, who is just a mirror that narcissisticly reflects my existence back to me, in any way solicits that commitment. It is I, my choosing, which lends meaning and value to the commitment and I who benefits by thus exercising my freedom…Equally, commitment understood in quantum terms…is not something directed towards others, nor projected upon others, but and act of fidelity bound up with others as a fundamental part of the self’s own definition, a fundamental part of its very nature as a system always engaged in creative relationship…”

(Danah Zohar, The Quantum Self)
