Inside this “sustainable village” will live the “late” men, special men who today are misunderstood more than others – more than modern men – but who push to be heard and understood more clearly. The spectre of the late man forces one to listen, to rediscover the perspectives of listening; his authority is nothing but that solitary, mute invitation to listen.
The “us” in “not us” becomes the “we” in “we late men”. The late man is not only a survivor, as some mere ghost at the extremities of individuality.
The first choice – other than fundamental and initial choices relative to how to set out the interior space in a bayonet-like shape, something that recalls the urban, agricultural spirit of this region – was that of functionally distributing the village’s three essential, characterising elements.
