You can"t rewind the wheel of progress, but you can swerve it to either side. Apocatastasis is a fiction, that there will be a time when everything reverts to its former state. These images take us to the shore of the Great Ocean, where the view is almost the same as it used to be over the prime sea in the beginnings of time. But something is still left from the old world. It creaks at its joints, before the last details have been repaired, and everything returns as before.
apocatastasis ( Greece= 1. restoration, re-establisment, renovation 2. return to previous condition )
