That last second of the last scene, Pippa's face returns to nocturnal veil.
"I am forgetting the entire past... All history is nothing but myth, and is only composed of thoughts to which we give the essentially mythical value of representing what once was. Each moment fades each moment into the realm of the imaginary, and hardly are you dead before you are off, with the speed of light, to join the centaurs and the angels... What am I saying? Hardly is our back turned, hardly are we out of sight, before opinion makes of us what it will."
- Paul Valéry
