After the bloody passage from the liquid reality to the terrestrial one, our existence and our memory in of this reality is very short in comparison with the time needed to arrive up to here.

Our existence itself is a mystery. Our passage and transformation from one substance to another, during our temporary existence of different realities, in order to turn back again in cosmic dust, constitutes a real mystery. All this mystery starts with an act of gestation. During the 9 months period in a liquid universe we experience in our memory all the transformations and experiences of our species during millions of years. During our existence of terrestrial reality, we have always wanted to leave a mark in our memory, as a message of this existence to our descendants. Such messages are the pictograms and petroglyphs of our prehistoric predecessors in Albania, that just like in many other countries of the world still remain a mystery. The decoding of these messages would open a new page in the history of mankind memory and existence on planet Earth.
