Several questions are posed by this theme. One of these issues is related to the omnipresence of the gaze because we live in a world of gazes in which looking and being looked at is part of the normal experience of each one.
However, looking does not necessarily mean seeing, much less observing.
The intention, attention and emotion that underlie it condition the nature of the gaze, influencing in a decisive way what we could refer to as the quality of the gaze, its expression, which stems from the current “state of mind” but also throughout the environment it develops, that is, by the character of the individual.
To look establishes a border between the exterior and the interior and simultaneously a bridge between two worlds that communicate through it. More than an organ of vision, it is a revelator, perhaps the main one, of the emotional interior, the psychic aura of being, that's why they call it the “window of the soul”.
On the other hand, there are several types of real looks, looks that can be human, animals can or even be microbial, but beyond these there are imaginary, simulated, intuited, dreamed, desired or feared looks. There are visible looks and hidden looks.
Are we being watched, without knowing it, from space? Will there be a God, a “Big Brother”, an alien humanity, a variety of observing entities that see us from space and record all our actions?
All these questions have already been asked and are a recurring theme of a Humanity, aware of its loneliness, which feels alone and a little lost in the immensity of the Universe.
