Beginning with a consideration of perception and memory, the author proposes the reconstruction of the past in order to constitute a future of conceivable "possible worlds", constructed from the definition of the past and present world, in order to construct possibilities of communication by means of the construction of systems of information and, in the process, to understand social life. It is an excellent reflection on the concept of perception and the form in which the subject operates to construct its object of investigation.
