Hans Böhler: Alpensee, 1920.


 A life’s heartbeats.

The heart is a muscle but a muscles with a certain number of autonomous beats … all heart beats together are what we call an individual’s life of earth. A first visitor to the moon had a funny theory which he believed in: Do not move too much or too quickly because this uses up the number of heart beats with which your heart muscle was delivered to you. Life stops when our heart muscle runs out of beats. What actually is a beat?​
