If we are a metaphor of the universe, the human couple is the metaphor par excellence, the point of intersection of all forces and the seed of all forms.The couple is time recaptured, the return to the time before time.
One can't make pure clay of time's mud. There is no life that can be recaptured wholly; as it was. Which is to say that all biography is ultimately fiction.Bernard Malamud
Everything must be recaptured and relocated in the general framework of history , so that despite the difficulties, the fundamental paradoxes and contradictions, we may respect the unity of history which is also the unity of life .
