The Labirinth of Time

“No maze is a trap.” (Pierre Rosenstiehl, Le parole del labirinto)

“A labyrinth of symbols” ran. “An invisible labyrinth of time. I, an English barbarian, was given to unravel this diaphanous mystery. After more than a hundred years, the details are irrecoverable but it is not difficult to imagine what happened. Ts’ui Pên will have said a few times: ‘I retire to write a book I do.’ And sometimes: ‘I retire to build a maze I do.’ Everyone thought of two works, no one thought that book and labyrinth were one thing…” (Jorge Luis Borges, The Garden by the Forking Paths, in Collected Fictions)
