LIMITS – Jean-Paul Sartre: The Limits to understanding are deadly. Fly over, without insisting too. UNDERSTAND – Ethiopian proverb: They talk to signs with the blind. They speak softly to the deaf. STRESS SPACE – H. Heine: Tell me! What does the man? Which side has come? Where you go? Who dwells beyond the stars?
