Hmm. It has a membrane. It has come, it’s there. It knows everything about us. It doesn’t need to reveal everything. We don’t belong to it. Neither does it belong to anybody. It consists of memories, emotions, formed by architecture. Barbora has invited Lucie to search for it together. Maybe it is there but perhaps it is someplace else. Maybe it is a Genius, maybe a wandered, maybe it is that which belongs to that place or city.
Suddenly the body movements begin to transform right in front of your eyes into some virtual neuron-like net of a memory, a parable of senses, imagination, and a function of storing a mind into a matter. Into something usually invisible, something fundamentally and deeply hidden.
