    What they fail to see is that those bestowing the golden key are simply searching for an ideal that is a reflection of their own mind.

      Perhaps I could have been more clear.

      In searching for their artistic ideal, they fail to see the ideal of the 'other' and fail to see any value (especially a social one) outside their own rigid parameters.

      Maybe that is self-evident as well. I dunno. I need coffee.
