Tales of the Bodiless

“How do remove yourself from your own body and leave it momentarily? How long can we remain outside of ourselves without losing ourselves forever?”

Tales of the Bodiless explores a hardly imaginable state: that of a world without bodies. In this non-scientific fiction expressed in four situations, bodies are transformed into froth or disappear into the landscape where they dissolve into colored dust; humans evaporate in the memory of the species that follows them.
