A mysterious artifact, the Polyhedron, the stone block which appears also in Melancholia, Albrecht Dürer’s famous engraving, is discovered amidst a group of medieval ruins in Bucharest. Doru, the main character, becomes gradually obsessed with the symbolism of the engraving, especially after a meaningful discussion with Andreea, a young psychologist. Andreea reveals the secret of the correspondence between Carl Jung and Immanuel Velikovsky, a shattering truth, also hidden between the lines of the Red Book, a journal in which the Swiss psychoanalyst has written down his phantasms, visions and dreams. The entire humankind seems doomed, but the only thing which could save it from an apocalyptic ending is the Polyhedron itself. A dense text, beginning and ending with biblical references, incessantly intersected by Doru’s nostalgia for the lost paradise of his own past. A short story that will make you change the way you think.
