The soul is a magnet

The soul lays the face round itself, as well as the magnet arranges his iron-venal filings round itself . And thus it does the soul also with the clothes, or the apartment-equipment, or the friends whom one invites.

A friend walked through our apartment and shot with his new camera series of interior ideas, which maybe are a sort of clothing, dressing our souls, maybe a museum of personal history, result of shopping robberies … – notice the small animal sculpture on the tiny bowl: me (the cat) and my wife (the bear)

G.C. Lichtenberg:
Die Seele legt, so wie der Magnet den Feilstaub, so das Gesicht um sich herum.

Man könnte hinzufügen:
Die Seele legt das Gesicht um sich herum, so wie der Magnet seine Eisen-Feilspäne um sich herum anordnet. Und so tut es die Seele auch mit der Kleidung, der Wohnungs-Einrichtung, den Freunden, die man einlädt.

“The direction of magnetic field lines represented by the alignment of iron filings sprinkled on paper …” (wikipedia)
frizz-translation of the G.C. Lichtenberg (1742-1799) quotation:
The soul lays, as well as the magnet according to the filings, the face, the mimicry round itself.

One could add:
The soul lays the face round itself, as well as the magnet arranges his iron-venal filings round itself . And thus it does the soul also with the clothes, or the apartment-equipment, or the friends whom one invites.

    “Ein wirklicher Innenraum ist wie ein erweiterter Leib, ein erweitertes Kleid des Menschen. Im idealen Falle spiegelt er, einem idealen Kleide gleich, die Bewegungsformen des Körpers wie die Farben der Seele. Das bewegliche Zelt des Nomaden, die Höhle des urzeitlichen Jägers, die um den Sonnenhof gelagerten Räume des antiken Südländers, die geschlossenen des nordischen Menschen, das getäfelte Zimmer der „deutschen Renaissance“, der Prunksaal des Barocks, die fein-bescheidene Wohnung des Biedermeiers – sie alle verraten das Leben des Insassen, sie alle sind vom Menschen ausgehender Niederschlag seiner gesamten Gebärdung.” Wilhelm Pinder, Einleitung zu “Innenräume deutscher Vergangenheit”, Verlag Langewiesche 1924
