“Afterlife is when one is not yet in life, when one watches it, when one seeks to enter it. She is not dead but already almost living, almost born, perhaps being born, in this passage beyond borders and outside of time which defines desire. Desire for the other, desire for the world. That life may flow as into a swollen waterskin. And one is still far away. Afterlife is like overseas or beyond the grave. One must pass beyond the rigidity of the obvious, of prejudice, of fears, of habits, pass beyond the obtuse real and enter into a reality at once more painful and more pleasant, into the unknown, the secret, the contradictory, open one’s senses and know. Pass beyond the opacity of silence and invent our existences, our loves, where there is no longer destiny of any kind 1”.
