The flow that matters in each frame is the moment with which humans encounter, and in that significant moment, they wipe redundant memories out from their minds, which leads to mindlessness. This is where presence comes into being. Each presence comes from a kind of threat and the fear of a horrible event. Without that threat, the mind would carry on with its activity with no perception of the moment. My attempt has been to portray the very presence.
