Today, has escaped the cage. who knows if definitely… (…) At this time no one knows yet who will inhabit the cage in the future, or whether at the end of this extraordinary evolutionary process radically new prophets will emerge or there will be a great rebirth of ideals and traditional thinking; or if, on the contrary, what will take place will be a petrification with a kind of tense self-bombing. Then, perhaps the phrase could be to the last representatives of this civilization: “Specialists without spirit, sybarites without heart; they are a zero to the left and they imagine that they have reached a peak that humanity has never reached before.
