Relations with the image I

“Man and animal differ in history, and memory, both on a personal and social level.

Our relationships are also our stories, shared with others.

Our values ​​are the stories that motivate us to action. Our culture is our collective history. The stories we tell ourselves can destroy us, and they can heal us.

There is no life without our body, but our stories created in the body live longer than corporeality. We remember people longer than their bodies live, and our traditions live longer than our buildings. Even if we don’t influence the passage of time, we do influence exactly how we use it and what stories we leave behind.
