"...(not) shapeless, but so complex that the eye could recognize no describable shape. There were hemispheres and shining metal, coupled by long plastic rods. The rods were of a flat grey colour, so that he could not make out which were nearer; they merged into a flat mass from which protruded individual cylinders. As he looked at it, he had a curious feeling that eyes gleamed from between these rods; but wherever he glanced at the construction, he saw only the spaces between them."

- Ramsey Campbell, "The Render of the Veils"

The premise of this short story was that hideousness is objective not subjective amd that it's inherent in reality. Our senses evolved to block out this hideousness.

This was a concept I could not accept.
