Qid is a experimental project from Vinkovci (Croatia)

There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there. The other is to walk round the whole world till we come back to the same place. The best relation to our spiritual home is to be near enough to love it. But the next best is to be far enough away not to hate it. All ways lead round again to the central and civilised philosophy, including this road through elf-land and topsyturvydom. As soon as I had clearly in my mind this conception of something solid in the solitary and unique character of the divine story, it struck me that there was exactly the same strange and yet solid character in the human story that had led up to it; because that human story also had a root that was divine. But in order to see them clearly we have to see them as a whole. We have to see how they developed as well as how they began; for the most incredible part of the story is that things which began thus should have developed thus. Anyone who chooses to indulge in mere imagination can imagine that other things might have happened or other entities evolved. Anyone thinking of what might have happened may conceive a sort of evolutionary equality; but anyone facing what did happen must face an exception and a prodigy. Far away in some strange constellation in skies infinitely remote, the modern man is looking at the most ancient origins and it has been like a man watching for daybreak in a strange land; and expecting to see that dawn breaking behind bare uplands or solitary peaks.
