Remark:

Medusa appeares somtimes as a representing notions to nihilism. Any attempt to avoid looking into her eyes represents avoiding the depressing reality that the universe is meaningless. For example In the famous novel of Jack London "The Mutiny of the Elsinore" De Casseres said:

"The profoundest instinct in man is to war against the truth; that is, against the Real. He shuns facts from his infancy. His life is a perpetual evasion. Miracle, chimera and tomorrow keep him alive. He lives on fiction and myth. It is the Lie that makes him free. Animals alone are given the privilege of lifting the veil of Isis; men dare not. The animal, awake, has no fictional escape from the Real because he has no imagination. Man, awake, is compelled to seek a perpetual escape into Hope, Belief, Fable, Art, God, Socialism, Immortality, Alcohol, Love. From Medusa-Truth he makes an appeal to Maya-Lie."
