Expressionist scene of Prague’s Jewish Ghetto, illustrated by Hugo Steiner, Prag (1915)

When men arise from their beds, they think they have shaken off sleep and they know not that they have fallen victim to their senses and are in the grip of a much deeper sleep than the one they have just left. There is only one true state of wakefulness, and that is the one you are now approaching. If you should speak to others of it, they will say you are sick and they cannot understand you. For that reason it is pointless and cruel to speak to them of it.
Gustav MeyrinkDer Golem
