This book aims at being a kind of manual allowing one to follow the weft of thinking, its natural and necessary development—when the simple and urgent question is asked: What has become of life today? What is life becoming while it seems to manifest itself, harshly by waves of unbelievable realities—where do we find its mystery and where does it recede? This question is an obligation. How not to answer to oneself immediately, how not to acknowledge the present existence, its hesitation between faith and anxiety, wonder and renunciation? A manual, therefore, in order not to forget that the spirit always is experienced—according to its resources and dwellings—which cannot fail to happen.

— Etel Adnan
