in girum imus nocte
et consumimur igni
A fire of unknown origin took my baby away.
Fire of unknown origin took my baby away.
Swept her up and off my wavelength.
Swallowed her up like the ocean in a fire thick and gray.
Death comes sweeping thru the hallway like a ladies’ dress.

Death, it made me sick and crazy
‘Cause that fire took my baby away.

and are consumed by fire

That doesn’t include labor, rent of the place that designed/built it, paying people to move it and set it up etc and of course the cost of the space itself. There were at least 3 people on staff to answer questions and the exhibit is free.”
The answer is:

dedication beyond the threshold of pain and disregard of quantites
as the loss of self is the only pain
“Know that the whole world is a mirror,
in each atom are found a hundred blazing suns.
If you split the center of a single drop of water,
a hundred pure oceans spring forth.
If you examine each particle of dust,
a thousand Adams can be seen.
A universe lies hidden in a grain of millet.
everything is brought together at the point of the present.
From each point along that circle thousands of forms are drawn.
Each point, as it revolves in a circle,
is at times a circle, at others a turning circumference.”
–Mahmoūd Shabestarī (1288–1340)
