An insipid notion (The astonished world) is a collection of unreal experiences caused by the feeling of late and inexperienced love, and the inability to fully know the experience of a love open to the world, public, without shame. "The lover is then separated from the world, he un realizes it because he fantasizes, on the other hand, the adventures or utopias of his love; he surrenders to the Image, in relation to which everything disturbs him" (Lacan)
