Summary/Abstract: The geological era in which we live is called Anthropocene – it is the age in which the driving force is exactly the anthropos, man. Thanks to, yet again, man that could be the final chapter of Earth’s life (considering the announcements and predictions of the experts). Or is it, in fact, possible to think otherwise? Through the deconstruction of Christianity and through the overall corpus of his philosophical thought, Jean-Luc Nancy has given us indications and different movements. This text will try to indicate how ‘we’ – the flesh of the world – could ‘change direction’, actualise metanoia, modify tautology and heterology. Besides that, it is necessary to realise that we are always exposed, as a source to other fellow-sources. What we perceive as the world is the spacing of those fellow-sources. The essence of that world is separation. If certain mystics are to be believed, and Nancy who gladly refers to them, the place of salvation is not far away – it could as well be that personal and the ever-so foreign heart.
