    Information

    "As your perspective of the world increases not only is the pain it in?icts on you less but also its meaning. Understanding the world requires you to keep a certain distance from it. Things that are too small to see with the naked eye, such as molecules and atoms, we magnify. Things that are too large, such as cloud formations, river deltas, constellations, we reduce. At length we bring it within the scope of our senses and we stabilise it with ?xer. When it has been ?xed we call it knowledge. Throughout our childhood and teenage years we strive to attain the correct distance from objects and phenomena. We read, we learn, we experience, we make adjustments. Then one day we reach the point where all the necessary distances have been set, all the necessary systems have been put in place. That is when time begins to pick up speed."

    Karl Ove Knausgaård
    A death in the family

     "Cuando la visión de conjunto del mundo se amplía, no sólo disminuye el dolor que causa, sino también el sentido. Entender el mundo equivale a colocarse a la cierta distancia de él. Lo que es demasiado pequeño para verlo a simple vista, como las moléculas, lo ampliamos; lo que es demasiado grande, como el sistema de las nubes, los deltas de los ríos, las constelaciones, lo reducimos. Cuando lo tenemos al alcance de nuestros sentidos, lo fijamos. A lo fijado lo llamamos conocimiento. Durante toda nuestra infancia y juventud nos esforzamos por establecer la distancia correcta de cosas y fenómenos. Leemos, aprendemos, experimentamos, corregimos. Y un día llegamos a un mundo en el que se han fijado todas las distancias necesarias, y establecido todos los sistemas. Es entonces cuando el tiempo empieza a correr más deprisa."
