reduces us to our primal state:
E. M. Cioran
so that the mind never accumulates
and is therefore never contaminated by the past,
but is always new, fresh, innocent?”
with which he had vainly hoped to pierce the mystery,
he now stands before the veil of creation naked and awe-struck.
He divines what is in store for him.
Everything becomes personal in a new sense.
He becomes himself a new person.”
