Skies Passions: Reflections on La piel del cielo

  • Alira Ashvo-Muňoz
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 112)


Ordinary experiences of the common sense world are accepted as real and awareness of perception creates this reality. Man in his daily endeavors goes about without being concerned with his place in the universe. But some passionately question beyond personal boundaries. The micro and macro cosmos are opposed but complementary and interdependent. We perceive totality in relation to oneself, a conscious unity centered in us. Cognizant relationships show potential, functional and organic exponentials, their interconnections implies a completion, actualized by means of language. Perceptions are interpretative, having references to spatial and temporal backgrounds. Celestial beings disclosed in observation are interpreted through perception, reflection and comprehension. Human life exists in an unbounded realm, an immeasurable quantitative vastness with unlimited dynamics of interpretations forming the rationality for existence. As the skies, metaphysical indeterminacy of being is an endless passion.
