“the criminal’s act lays bare the big Other’s impotence. ..The subject of the impotent gaze can only passively observe the affair, since his hands are bound on account of his hidden complicity, solidarity, with the criminal.” – This position powerless witness is also a crucial component of the experience of the Sublime..A human can ..trigger such an experience.
