The search for the true self ends up in a structure of fiction. There’s nothing crazier than the human reality. How do we stop to compel reality from facing our own dreams? Wear the innocent and playful creepy dress and change your masks along the voyage, play the game of the characters to survive and enjoy the accident of the unknown, the probabilities of the coincidence, the never stop dreaming, you can’t really extinguish the border between the imaginary and the tangible.
