Alphaville

“But no one has lived in the past, and no one will live in the future. The present is the form of all life. This quality cannot be changed by any means. Time is like a circle, which turns endlessly. The descending arc is the past. The arc that climbs is the future. Everything has been said, provided words do not change their meanings, and meanings their words. Is it not obvious that someone who customarily lives in a state of suffering requires a different sort of religion from a person habitually in a state of well-being? Before us, nothing existed here. No one. We are totally alone here. We are unique, dreadfully unique. The meaning of words and of expressions is no longer grasped. An isolated word, or a detail of a design can be understood. But the meaning of the whole escapes. Once we know the number one, we believe that we know the number two, because one plus one equals two. We forget that first we must know the meaning of plus. The acts of men carried over from past centuries will gradually destroy them logically.”
