Telles sont les questions que le narrateur, en cost d'une mère dont le corps et l'esprit peu à peu se dégradent, pose directement à René Descartes, enjambant d'une seule foulée les quatre siècles qui le séparent du grand homme.

Ne trouvant nul secours dans les traités du philosophe qu'il apostrophe et morigène, ne sachant se défendre de l'angoisse que lui encourage le vieillissement maternel, il finit par consulter, non sans défiance, l'extravagante et très peu cartésienne Mila.

C'est elle qui, par des voies que nous ne dirons pas, saura l'initier à l'amour (ce jeu où l'on perd quand on gagne), lui transmettre son goût des fables (qui disent l. a. vérité illogique et furtive des choses) et l'amener à s'orienter dans le brouillard sans trop le craindre.

Avec une allégresse ravageuse, Lydie Salvayre réhabilite l. a. technology du cœur.
