Milan Kundera about emptiness (“The Unbearable Lightness of Being”, 1984) - Anyone whose goal is something higher must expect some day to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? . . . No, vertigo is something other than the fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.
