Human history is full of attempts to master space and time. Today there is eventually something coming to resolve numerous problems. Metaphorai is the answer to the question of extending our existence. It is a new way of traveling in space, time and inside our own bodies. It is using traditional tools -such as word- counter to the new simulation technologies that demand special scientific equipment and that definitely have an expiry date –when the newer technologies come.
The original greek word «ΜΕΤΑΦΟΡΑΙ» means Transports, as well as Metaphors. It is written on every moving truck in Greece, on trucks that transport commodities all around the country. Metaphor, as the extended meaning of a word or as a meaning traveling through the words, is part of our everyday communication, our everyday life.
Now, we are finally able to extend our existence as we extend the meanings around us.
Teleportation and Transformation are two processes that emphasize the physicality of the body — in Transformation, the body shifts to another shape and form, in Teleportation, the body is disassembled and reassembled at another place in the same form. There is a movement or a passage or a gap from State 1 to State 2. During this in-between moment, we are not aware if the body is even present. Is this gap between our old and new self another version of ourselves? A non-self or a multiple self, including before, after, and the time between? And if this is so, are we able to fit all these possibilities together in one body?
Metaphorai is introduced as the only way to find an answer to these questions.
Warning: We are here to assist you to get successfully teleported or transformed, but keep in mind that you proceed on your own risk.
