There is an end. Or at least it is a story that left traces in many civilizations. The end of everything. We built bunkers in the hope of survival. Bunker as a shelter for the most frightening and imaginable event.

What if there is nothing left? A place where we will go if there is nothing left after us. What if there is a rare bird? We wouldn’t be sure he exists. We would look for it, trying to grasp proofs of its existence. This bird as this feeling of freedom and consciousness that would inhabit us if the instants left were rare and precious. We would be touched by every sunbeam as if it could be the last of that kind. The last highlighting a situation and a scenery this exact same and particular way. Everything the light touches is yours.
