    Краткое содержание/Аннотация:

    What is the most daring, amazing, and exciting journey we can make in a lifetime? What is the most interesting place to visit? We can travel to places as remote as possible, like explorers or cosmonauts, we can look into places as far as imaginable, like astronomers, we can visit the past, like historians or archaeologists, or we can delve as deeply as possible into the human soul, like artists or psychologists. All these voyages lead either to other places or to other times (or nowadays, to other servers on the internet). However, we can do better; the most daring trip is not the one leading to the most inaccessible place, but the trip leading to where there is no place at all. Such a journey implies leaving the prison of space and time and venturing beyond it, into a domain where there is no position, no present, no future, and no past, where we are free of all restrictions, but also of any security of thought. There, discoveries are still to be made and adventures to be fought. Almost nobody has ever been there; humanity took 2500 years to complete the trip, and has achieved it only recently.

    To venture into this part of nature, we need to be curious about the essence of travel itself, in particular about its most tiny details. The essence of any travel is motion. In principle, the quest to understand motion in all its details can be pursued behind a desk, with a book, some paper and a pen. But to make the adventure more apparent, this text tells the story of the quest as the ascent of a high mountain. Every step towards the top corresponds to a step towards higher precision in the description of motion. At the same time, each step will increase the pleasure and the delights encountered. At the top of the mountain we will arrive in the domain we were looking for, where #39;space#39; and #39;time#39; are words which have lost all content, and where the sight of the world's beauty is overwhelming and unforgettable.
