EKI Issue 02

spring 2022

If we decided to organize all light sources in a list drawn up in order of importance, there would be one that would appear at the top, before the others. On it depends our very existence, before that as human beings, precisely as living beings. We are talking, of course, about the Sun, the star closest to us, and its light: the new issue of Eki, Issue 02, is dedicated to this source, of real life.

Eki will explore Eki, admiring it with the very same respect and dedication that the ancients had for it: a star that is the Mother of the Earth and all its creatures. 

At rest, however, in the middle of everything is the sun, for in this most beautiful temple, who would place this lamp in another or better position than that from which it can light up the whole at the same time?
