In the “forgetful age” that we live in, generations lose their past, which is necessary to ensure their continuity. Force –fed with information from above, human beings are subjected to an erosion of memory, and multiply without knowing where they come from. The spirit of the individual, living with the illusion that the only past is her particular past, is contaminated with a “feeling of non-existence”. If “forgetting” becomes a permanent disease, all we are left with is chaos, quarrel and social collapse. Every end is, no doubt, a new beginning. The “forgetful” one fuses into the universe, to certainly find its roots, one day, in the trunk of a tree.
