The Ultimate

All objects point to the Ultimate,

 and a real work of art actively brings whoever 

sees or hears it 

to his real nature, which is beauty. 

The difference between an ordinary object and a work of art is 

  that the object is passive in its pointing towards the Ultimate 

whereas the work of art is active.
