Cor­rupted im­age

Fortean Times - - Letters - E Beck­ett

Re ‘In Front of your Eyes’ [ FT358:75]: yes, when search­ing for some­thing it would be help­ful to keep an im­age of the ob­ject in mind – but what if, as my part­ner and I have ex­pe­ri­enced from time to time, the im­age has some­how be­come ‘cor­rupted’? Half hours are wasted look­ing for a re­cently ar­rived buff en­ve­lope or pink leaflet. Both are over­looked in the piles of pa­pers be­cause, it turns out, they are white or yel­low. Even then I can’t quite ac­cept my im­age was ‘wrong’, and I as­cribe it to the mal­ice of inan­i­mate ob­jects. Some­times even the size of the en­ve­lope ap­pears to have trans­muted, larger or smaller.
