"I lived through moments when I had to admit: "This is not you any more. Without a chance to oppose a creature, whose origin and being are connected to the centuries passed long ago, is taking possession of you. It emanates inside your corpse, and soon nothing but a memory will be left out of you, floating freely in the realm of the past. You may return to it only like to the experience of someone else. A dead ancestor is rising inside you." And before my eyes unknown landscapes started to appear..."
( G. Meyrink )
"How high might a bird fly?
Free fall at top of freedom.
How deep in water might a fish swim?
Only with her belly up she will get free of the weight of the bond.
It´s hard to say, isn´t it?"
