We feel in one world, we think and name in another. Between the two we can set up a system of references, but we cannot fill the gap.
People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were travelling abroad.
