Loss of the absolute

 I’m going to the periphery to reencounter my centre. (Jean‐Luc Godard)

Loss of the absolute is a metaphor that can be understood as the blurring of the preset things, the widening of those references, constructions, emotions and experiences that are perceived as predetermined and unchangeable. The etymology of the word metaphor comes from the Greek, and it enlightens us with its meaning: “transfer”, “displacement”. This journey becomes, also, at times, imperative conversion. Made like paper to fly I stay in it, in this conversion, written so that neither time nor forgetfulness consume me.
