Although contemporary society believes in change and progress, the historical evidence shows that nothing changes but rather stands still just like the time, which determines it. While progress is technologically justified, the greatest value of all beings – the ability to love – is neglected. Our corporal temporality is our greatest potential for change, since the sooner we realise how transient we are the sooner we will turn passivity into activity
