Human behavior is influenced by events that happened in the past, no matter how long ago these took place. There thus exists a mental para-time running parallel to objective time, where the prayers of fear and of guilt, deformations that tear open the skin, exercise an ongoing effect.
The drama of human self-expression takes place in the cuts in the skin. Self-revelations show what the past is in the present and the present is in the past. My exterior shows the interior as I move inward, the inside turned outward, gaping open.
