moments of disappearance: the loss of time in everyday moments and actions
The lapse occurs frequently at breakfast and the cup dropped and overturned on the table is its well-known consequence. The absence lasts a few seconds; its beginning and its end are sudden. The senses function, but are nevertheless closed to external impressions. The return being just as sudden as the departure, the arrested word and action are picked up again where they have been interrupted. Conscious time comes together again automatically, forming a continuous time without apparent breaks. For these absences, which can be quite numerous-hundreds every day most often pass completely unnoticed by others around- we will be using the words "disappearance frequency". however for the person in this frequency, nothing really has happened, the missing time never existed. At each crisis, without realizing it, a little of his or her life simply escaped-simply disappeared.
