Disney's Otherwordliness

When Walt Disney, according to Neal Gabler (WD- The Triumph of the American Imagination, pp 300)said to a reporter,on the occasion of the making of Fantasia "If we quit mentally and artistically, we will begin to die", followed by his often asserting the idea that they needed to outdo themselves, they needed to keep "plussing", makes one think that life for him was a constant overcoming of oneself, that living was the self-consumption of sacrifice; that living was spirit.
That is what I write in my new book "Disneyssence".
