Gregory Corso and "Seeing Something New"

…or you could see something new. And by seeing that something new that’s here that nobody sees, and you illuminate others, then you’ve got it made.

- Gregory Corso

I am particularly taken with the “seeing” aspect of this quote. It implies, to me, that whatever you are creating is not only a creation but an act of observation, of giving credence. The World is the subject, a place we are in disbelief of, though it occurs again and again without regard for our ability to understand it. What Corso is speaking about here is something like a prophetic act.

Here is the url for the video from which the above quote is spoken:
