The role of Outsider might be played, say in a horror movie, by a dog, mankind's best friend. The dog sniffs something, a difference, something is in the air. It is important that we do not regard the dog as honest; merely as without a decision in the matter. [...] Horror is the title I am giving to the perception of the precariousness of human identity, to the perception that it may be lost or invaded, that we may be, or become, something other than we are, or take ourselves for.
