Closed and open
In a space with positive curvature the dynamics of the human project tends to be buckled up in the enclosure of its loop.
In a space with negative curvature, on the contrary, this dynamics, far from being able to be buckle up, opens exponentially.
There is ultimately, beyond the important human decision, something like an ontological decision of the being itself, between the 'same' and the 'other'. Either the identity is buckled on itself in safety or the difference opens infinitely.
Around the `same' the space is bent and takes a positive curvature. The reign of the `same' buckles its roundness in this enclosure. On the contrary the 'other' opens the space in negative curvature. The difference and the transcendence push towards the explosion of the enclosures.
Let us still return to the allegory of the cave by Plato. A most vertiginous question put to man. Can these cave dwellers, locked up since their birth, have the slightest doubt on what appears to them to be the 'real'? They lack any reference to the 'other'. They are prisoners of the 'same'. This 'same' is thus the sole lawmaker and like an absolute to them.
The 'other' Word coming from elsewhere has only few chances to be heard in the middle of these assured and settled voices. If it dared to raise the voice it would be expelled at once with violence. Isn't it the bad conscience of the cave? And moreover isn't it suspicious-looking in this enclosure where it spoils captive euphorias? And yet it knows…
Thus you have to leave. Only from outside the 'whole' of your situation will be clear. But when are you gone far enough 'outside' to see every thing from outside? Is it possible to go out infinitely? Undoubtedly such a total 'breaking out' will remain forever impossible. However this impossibility should not condemn the effort to try the limits.
The range of the allegory is infinite. The human reality never finishes leaving the cave and making its exodus. Today more than ever. The extreme human decision does not cease being played between the 'closed' and the 'open'.
