Nature likes hiding itself.
HERACLITUS OF EPHESUS (frag. 123)

The concept of «physical ‘dancity’» (not of the physics, but rather of the philosophy on the «physis») allows the approach of the idea of dance, idea so central and so recurrent in the work of Nietzsche.

In order to have vision, a relative union of the one who sees with clairvoyance and of the object to be seen is needed. Conceiving a tree is to see it being. The vision, far from being a simple reflection, appears rather as a reflection of the thought. Therefore, any mental picture finds itself in a situation of dependence of origin from the visible.

The mystery of the visible establishes the community of destiny
of the artists who do not limit themselves to simply seeing the visible,
that is to transpose it into seen or into a simple representation.
