The premonition of spore power and fragility of giants creates a feeling of weakness and a fear of being trapped into multilayered systems.
Sometimes he didn’t know whether this image was the result of his reasoning from the long-term observations of events or a terrible magnification of his own inner self. (Vladimir Bartol)
The premonition of spore power and fragility of giants creates a feeling of weakness and a fear of being trapped into multilayered systems. The stringing of events almost runs out of time to make an impression. The connection of particles is not interrupted by the jeopardy of solitaires. What is the place of man in this sequence, characterized by the destruction of the environment, genetic engineering and perception of life as a very short period of time?
