Das menschliche Gehirn kennt viele Wege sich einzurichten, im Alltag und im Fernsehsessel. Wie kein anderes ist es dazu fähig, aus neuen Erfahrungen Erinnerungen zu machen und Können zu erwerben.

Era l'inquietudine di un amore impossibile da cui scaturiva una condizione di vita autenticamente sofferta in continue avvisaglie di morte. Era la sua omosessualità. �A Granada il poeta era considerato omosessuale, disgrazia grave in una città nota per la sua avversione nei confronti della sessualità non convenzionale»; così Ian Gibson36 , il maggior biografo del poeta andaluso.
