The “self” is impossible

Regarding myself as a mere echo,

Cave-like, unintelligible and nocturnal

Anna Akhmatova

The “self”; an echo of what is never present, repeating a past yet to come, and a trace of what has never been; the cave-like and the obscure where the enigma dwells in the hollowed out depth, in the space leading to the unknown, the uncertain, or the dangerous, and a night where clarity is denied, where the “I” is a silhouette disappearing into the dark.
