How does the cameraman compare with the painter?

They are equals in different mediums

Authentic being-one's-self takes the definite form of an existentiell modification of the "they"; and this modification must be defined existentially. What does this modification imply, and what are the ontological conditions for its possibility?


Is everything popular a debasement of what it would otherwise be? are we really looking for a salvation or meaning that only a few can access, with difficulty?

Yes, we are really looking for meaning. everything popular is not a debasement at all; popular forms of a thing can co-exist with "higher" or more "meaningful" versions of the thing.
