"What is terrifying partakes of the abyss, three times linked to the unknown. First, the time you fell into the belly of the boat. [...] the belly of this boat dissolves you into a nonworld from which you cry out. This boat is a womb, a womb abyss. Although you are alone in this suffering, you share in the unknown with others whom you have yet to know. This boat is your womb, a matrix, and yet it expels you. This boat: pregnant with as many dead as living under sentence of death."
(Edouard Glissant, 1997)
