How are we to react to this charming yet more than slightly sinister myth? A superficial view would be that it tells us nothing about ourselves but is simply a story describing a particularly self- obsessed and socially defective young man. 2 For example, Narcissus imagines Echo’s sayings to be those of a different person, whereas in reality it is only his own voice that is being thrown back at him. So the myth might tell us that the voices we hear in our heads are often not those of other people but our own, falsely imagined to be those of others.
Indeed, young men in underwear advertisements, for instance, nearly always project an especially loathsome narcissism. We discuss later Rousseau’s view of the asymmetry between men and women in respect of vanity). We accept her at her own valuation, which is huge, so huge that she has no need of us, any more than a deity has need of his worshippers. She no doubt manages an icy inward smile with pleasure of being who she is, just as Narcissus might have smiled in his self-induced trance. But she need not smile at us—indeed, to promote this kind of illusion, she must not smile at us—because that would be a gesture of recognition and reciprocity, and the fantasy she is inducing is one in which there is no commerce with people like ourselves.
Thus, suppose you find yourself in an instant transported to the middle of a desert or ocean. You can see in all directions—but unless you have other clues, what you see does not tell you where you are. Or suppose that like Rip Van Winkle you regain consciousness after a long sleep or coma. You see what is happening around you—but that does not tell you what time it is. Time and place function as points of reference from which things are experienced, but are themselves no part of the experience.
