the voice

“The ancient Egyptian sacred statue which, at every sunset, as if by a miracle, issued a deeply reverberating sound. This mysterious sound magically resonating from within an inanimate object is the best metaphor for the birth of subjectivity. For Subjectivity in its proto-ontological status. Subjectivity is here reduced to a spectral voice, a voice in which resonates not the self-presence of a living subject, but the void of its absence.” (S. Zizek)
