Whiteness: white of salt
Of light
Where humanity leaves its mark and is lost forever.

White on white: the cosmos and all who inhabit it are one
The mother and the embryo are one
The cycle of generations is the continuation of light
One journey.
One walk.
A ray of light: a moment of rest, a deep breath.
Collapse and rise, timeless between life and death, the priests of an unknown religion.
An incantation to a sleeping god.
Conflict between simplicity of man and dehumanizing industry.
Where is the soul?
Where does this journey begin and end?
One journey.
