How can a physical island be invisible for a great part of society ? How can we refuse to see the powers that threaten the evolution of our cognition? How can we sense a presence within the emptiness of our natural reality ? How come we can be so blind as not to see the road that has let us to where we stand today and delegate fate the responsibility for where we are heading? How can we believe and understand a universe so vast that disappears from our sight while simultaneously being so minuscule as to make us invisible within totality and yet be able to possess and summarize such coexistence as symbol? How can we see in an image something we haven’t experienced in reality and how can we experience in our minds the experiences transmitted towards us? The power of invisibility lies within the self, sometimes disguised as denial , selective ignorance, convenient belief. We make this power invisible per se since not seeing is also a release from responsibility. We have the capacity of forcing light into darkness, of finding openings when our sight is blocked or deceived by mirrors and blinding lights, of seeing power in the evidence left behind … or in front of us, as a force of nature, as the recognition of a dialectic necessary for stability in which truth and history are not solely written by the victors. Invisibility has to do with how we manage distance from the issues of life that affect us.
