Hi Jude,
Just wanted to say that I agree with this post 100 percent. Your takeaway from Conrad’s “Nigger of Narcissus” encapsulates, I think, exactly what he’s trying to convey. Between the differences of the scientist and the artist and how he uses this comparison to implore people to turn away from cold fact and experience more as similar the artist is able to do and to help others to do. I also think your modern day comparison is inspired!
