at the site of our own innermost being

intersubjective |ˌintərsəbˈjektiv|
adjective Philosophy
existing between conscious minds; shared by more than one conscious mind.
intersubjectively adverb
intersubjectivity |-ˌsəbjekˈtivitē| noun

I located the applicable line in the Weschler essay that I responded to in my essay about David Lynch's Mullholland Drive that I posted yesterday:

"As in both the Vermeer and the Velázquez, turning away she is turning toward, as in turn are we through her.
Intersubjectivity: gazing back, outward, at the site of our own innermost being (70)."

You should still read the essay, and probably buy the book.

Abe's Axe is a symbol. Like the firey wand of Hermes, it is the conduit for bringing into action manifestations from the creative imagination. He is not killing vampires so much as freeing living dead men. The great emancipator would like to bring you into the 4th dimension of consciousness. He is going to have to kill you to do this, though. Or, actually, just annihilate your ego to transport you. In this instance, his axe is the craft. A craft is both a transport and a skill. The magician's wand is both. A pen can be mightier than the sword. What's your craft? Use your symbol well. . .
