As you sleep on the other side of the world, I trust most Yasminers

response to Vitor.

I meant to say:

The following passages [from my thesis - previous message] seem to
relate to Vitor's idea of the disorientation (vertigo) that empty space
can bring about, yet which also helps us to 'keep an open
structure of words and thougths'.

Antarctica, like the Arctic, is often perceived as an empty space and
can stimulate poetic responses from both artists and scientists. These
responses defy verbal translation.
