PARALLEL WORLDS (2002 - 2003)

From the series " Migrations "


The Compass :

But the interior / exterior for each individual is formed by two separate and well differentiated worlds, however, that is a fiction that leads us to a single reality, one does not exist without the other, and it is not only relative from the point of view of territorial view, but also for all things regarding your timer. Somewhere and at some point the transgression will begin or end where one part is exchanged, nurtured, or imposed on the other, and thus, repeatedly like a circle molded by time, that revolutionizes in space towards a direction. , which will depend on our relationship, exterior / interior of each moment.


The Course :

How can you consider the context to which a real scenario belongs? If it is not space only, it is a space / time relationship. Where there are multiple scenarios interspersed from all directions "related" or antagonistic with their decorations of signs and structures that are transformed according to the timing scale of mobile, immobile and immovable motifs. And taking into account that all beings are irretrievably part and that according to their role in them, perception, vision and understanding can be  very different (and not exclusively on their literal perspective). These disagreements are recreated by a seat belt with which we capture "the realities" in our memory, auto predesigned  through a labyrinth where illusory visions and dreams flow in parallel.


The context is  as relative as the setting is.

The End :

The sensation of "reality" can convince us that we are facing the suggested fact, perhaps not directly in our consciousness, but exerting its effects over time. In contrast, when a high degree of realism is experienced or perceived by  be eyewitnesses, we could, if we wanted, erase that part of the "tape", nullifying the possible psyche / consequences of  that experience. In addition to  transform the dimension of a fact, simply by supplanting  a  word  for other.


Each being is potentially an emigrant, but even if someone escapes from that, all without exception have migrated from the body of our Father to that of our Mother and from her, to the outside world and where do we migrate when what comes to us? we call Death?


On another plane, our Solar System migrates through the Universe and this in turn through the Macro Universe. That is why we carry it in the very blood and from it every last drop migrates throughout our body. Emigrating is not only part of the human condition, it is the common generator of the existence of the  Known universe.

The point of view :

The  Relativity is also a relative fact, it would be  a great contradiction if she  same  was an absolutism.

The imbalance of some spaces can be, in turn, the balance of other spaces and these do not have to be represented  in the same space and time and neither inevitably be ephemeral.

Survive our fears  It is vital as it is also vital, to acquire with our evolution other fears that replace them. One of them: Fear of judging someone as an intruder simply by the color of their skin.


The  destination scenario :

The Tide, Low or High? Balance or imbalance? Large bodies of water move in a  Continent to another and "we know" that it is produced by the gravitational pull of the Moon.


Encyclopedia  Salvat.

Textually from: Migration (Fragment)

Volume 11, p. 2540.


... The most important migratory movements in recent times were the great European emigration to America (of the 60 million Europeans who emigrated  between 1835 and 1914, America welcomed 44 million). Other centers of attraction were ...

Pluto, is it getting closer or further away? In one part of its orbit it approaches the Sun and in the next it moves away. Why?

How many "rivers" and "straits" with wet backs are there?  on  the world? And what is the "context" of these scenarios?  And the  culprit Is the "place" of origin  or the destination?  Nobody at all? Side effects of any disease  "modern"  that we do not know? Memory, disinformation or historical "relativity"?

The Nothing, label that  It is often used by some scholars when they cannot understand the origin of life and the Universe.


The Chaos, another label for the misunderstanding of the facts when they do not correspond to a "known" model or pattern.


The protagonists :

Between the contradictions of feelings and insecurity  versus  The priorities,  we can feel very  alone  but that may be it, a feeling that was always there like a ghost.

Loneliness is not necessarily  Empty space,  however, it is an absolutely real feeling. Let's not blame the beings around us for our loneliness.

Earth can become, "distant territories" or  "missing spaces" but it shouldn't be  with the taste of exile.


To the memory of those who are serving a sentence "inside" and "outside" simply for  try to get out of the time that has been imposed on them.

The Flight :

Sometimes the sensation of unfolding and being (of simply being) in the space that feels and suffers your absence is inevitable because you are not in its domain.

Time"  is the light projected on  bodies in space, like  too  the "space" is deformed in time, searching within itself,  the density of existence.


A "proposal": Immigrate.  Wrongly applied to  animals and very specifically birds, these do not  understand the political, social and cultural boundaries of humans,  for them it is "everything",  very varied but a  only territory.


The Journey :

When man  itself  start  to fly, borders will cease to exist. And all the places on earth  they will be from Earth.


We are slaves to conditioned reflexes, unconsciously induced  to assume "realities" with  a  total  security and seriousness  possible, accepting the consequences as such.  When we look at a sheet of paper (PD) we interpret it as: After date. 

Yet on a sheet of marble  maybe like: "Rest in peace."


In what place exists  a "real" criterion on the victims  human with  reference to  migration movements  in the last 60 years in  all the world?


The  Luz discovers the meaning of the forms that are obstacles in its projection and the apparently unlit  does not exist  but  is  between the  shades. Translucent bodies also elude  the Light (Time) but space sustains its density and its reflection will become  inevitable. Still some monuments  they are "invisible". An "unfinished" image can  stimulate the  sensation  ghostly  about what  life as consciousness  is a  "ephemeral illusion", pointing out how  true and only existence "perpetuity" and "emptiness", as  infinity  eternal.


To the memory of those who have disappeared in the attempt.


PS : When they are so close to us,  watching us, I don't know where his metaphor begins or ends.
