Interpreting myself through the reflections of this world, a process akin to experiencing an inner crisis. To forget the average state constructed by the ontology of survival, one must awaken to the awareness of existence in time and focus on the relationship between oneself and the external environment. Experiencing the boundaries and evolution between phenomena, appearances, and illusions become crucial.
