The Clarity Of Sight

Someone recently said elsewhere: The clarity of sight can be regarded as a form of blindness.

I replied:
But the precondition of believing that to be literally true (as I do) is fully to empathise with -- and then use -- the clarity of sight that one hopes eventually to slough off when it has finished serving its purpose in establishing the fact of its blinding you to other possibilities and potentialities of constructive difficulty and blurred inspiration.
