Suffering Vertigo

"Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect some day to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? ... It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves."

The Unbearable Lightness of Being
(Kundera 1984)
