What oddly brought me back to SoS was discussing the Tao Te Ching and thinking about the phenomena of naming things, separating then from each other by imposing human ideas of what they are, turning nature in useful resources and so on. Then thinking about the psychological effect of livng in a world that is made up almost entirely of things that already have these names and ideas implied by their production. The naming process coming full circle appears as all that there ever really was and this is essentially what is meant by the spectacle.
