“In love ..‘the gaze of the Other remains even if the Other ..ceased to exist.’ ..This feeling of an Other’s gaze which ‘sees in me more than myself’ is ..what ..pushes me towards ethical activity ..to render me adequate to the expectation written into the ..gaze.” – [In religion] ‘God’ is ..this Other’s gaze returned by objects, an imagined gaze.. ..This gaze exists only for a desiring subject. – SLAVOJ ZIZEK
