It is like the old question, is it better to love or be loved? Because it isn’t a toss-up. There is a right answer there, and it isn’t even close, though most people seem to get it wrong. The Phoenicians want to be loved, which is why they become movie stars and celebrities. They need that attention. But they soon find out it is empty, because it is far better to love than be loved. Loving gives you depth while only being loved tends to make you shallow. All art comes from loving, not from being loved, which is why these people can’t create art. They only create simulacra of art, empty shells of creativity which have no center.
