Extra Chiasmus

Do I love you because you're beautiful? Or are you beautiful because I love you? - Oscar Hammerstein

This one was just fun so I thought I'd include it. It's pretty self explanatory but is the person and the object we vie for the "apple of our eye" because we deem it so or are they dear to us because others see them that way.

Much like Debords Chiasmus, do we consider them precious because there's a collective desire for our love or do is there a desire for our love because we consider them precious.

This chiasmus can be related to Debord's Society of the Spectacle due to the fact that we can fetishize and justify why we value certain things, but reverse engineer it in a way that we can blindly love something and call it "beautiful".
