For a modern mind, the word apocalypse means a great world disaster. But in fact, it is the transcription of a Greek term which simply means 'laying bare' , 'unveiling'. Uncommonly used in non-religious Greek, it appears rather often in the biblical translation of the Septuagint, where it refers to a 'laying bare' in the material sense, but above all, in the figurative sense to the 'revelation ' of human or divine secrets.
The Purpose of these Notebooks, the true battle, lay still before me-to incarnate, to bring into my own body what they prevented her from doing while she was alive. Doubtless, it was what to pull her out of there meant, to release her from that unacceptable tomb, for this step-by-step into the unknown of the Earth to be thrown into the terrestrial consciousness, through a simple human body giving itself body and soul to a mysterious Future and a species yet to become.
I had a Secret, was it to be engulfed once more under the ruins of one civilization or another? What is related here, or strives to be related, is the laying bare of an old species that does not know itself, nor its beginning or its Goal, or the reason for its mortal existence. A step-by-sep into the unknown of the earth through a simple human body offering itself to a mysterious future-which yet is already here within us-and to a species in the making. The beginning of a new Life, a second Life for the Earth and for men.
