There is only one thing sure in this world and that is the cycle from life to death. The timeline is a chain of events that is constantly influenced by our conscious and unconscious thinking and way of being. In the end, all what is left is the body: a living accumulation of scars, memories and patterns.
The body will pay is an approach to research the dialogue between the mind and the body, their development during time and how both need each other to create a unique identity and legacy. It looks for the different roles that the counterparts can embody in this dualistic environment. How are both important to survival and how are they shaping the process in order to continue “life” after death?
