Synopsis

At first it was only a rift.
At first nobody saw it.
It is supposed that rifts are caused where one does not go deeply enough. Where a sort of void
is created like a vacuum bubble.
There is neither a scientifically reasonable nor a theological explanation for that.
At first, The Rift sucks everything up through an only small opening, and another place is created.
It is the non-place, absolute silence, without hearing, without language.
Muddy. Principally, it is the Dark Grey Green.
There is everything else. The hole.
Fear. Silence. Horror. The race. The lake.
(Helmut Oehring)
