Anything experienced is a memory. There is no valuable distinction between a true memory and a false memory. All memories are evidentiary. Photography and Memory are identical. Photography is Memory. Every photograph looks back. Photographs look back because they carry a past. Outside of historical time, Eurydice is invariably saved.
(The light that sights the correctly-oriented, sightful Dasein is the light of the Other. Light is information. The information we call light is information about the truly other. All else is theatre.)
