Epiphany

EyeAnd i’m not talking about the browser that comes bundled along with Gnome in many Linux distros. Instead, I mean that feeling that comes out when you realize the essence of something, the pure and true reality that promptly flashes in a dark cave… The light that, for a moment, burns your retina and forces you to draw the sight and close your eyes; the same light that, a few instants later, overcomes the weak resistance opposed by your eyelids and hits your brain like a BANG, leaving behind it only ash and silence… Like a thousand daggers, photons stab your optic nerve. And there you remain, alone in the dark, alone with the sensation that something incredible as happened; and you can’t resist her warm temptation, so like a kid that has just been beated by his father, you humbly dare to open you eyes, again… and there you see her… the holy knowledge…

The image posted on the Wikipedia article gives (to me, at least) the exact epical sensation that you feel during an epiphany and that I tried to explain above (even if the most correct explanation would be a long series of 1s and 0s, only apparently randomly chosen). That’s it. I just (…) had an epiphany.

Side note: Joan Baez‘s “Here’s To You” (music by Ennio Morricone), as seen in Sacco e Vanzetti.
