Soyez bons, écoutez-les. Ce sont des vies uniques, passées, prises au hasard de milliers d'autres. Toutes réunies au même endroit. Des disparitions, des souvenirs d'incertitudes, des cheminements vers des impasses obscures ; des fragments d'existences qui démontrent l'inanité des simplifications ultimes et réfutent les évidences trop faciles.

Il n'y a rien à craindre. Il faut entrer, passer le sas, pousser les portes vitrées, suivre les flèches sombres dessinées sur le sol, elles vous dirigent. Vous y voilà ... Vous êtes en Réanimation... »
