Led by the urgency of action, of gain and consumption, our civilization lives at a frantic pace. We are forever moving and looking to the future before enjoying the present. Glorifying “having” at the expense of “being”, man runs after his own life on a never ending and insatiable quest. Denying the fragility of his existence, turning his back on his past again and again, he loses himself and continues to repeat the same mistakes. Yet this vanity born from his refusal to keep his place within the universe takes him ever further from his true nature and threatens the environment that sustains him. Today man faces the ultimate paradox: destroying his environment to satisfy the emptiness left by the loss of the meaning of his existence.
