We seem to live in an inevitable nonconformity. We do not accept the uncertainty that arises from our total ignorance about death, and while denying the only certainty that we probably have, we construct a hopeful discourse about a hypothetical future in which it is impossible to stop existing.
The representation of an imaginary on death pretends to rethink life’s real sense, inducing the observer to an act of resistance to the consumption of ideas imposed by a contaminated society.
Denying death is denying life. So perhaps it is necessary to understand that tragedy is not the supposedly reality of death. Tragedy is about not accepting this possibility and consequently, not having enough time to live.
