Phenomenalism and migration

Let’s close our eyes for a moment: imagine the face of "a migrant", as it is known or seen on the street or through the media…

Let us open and close our eyes: let us focus on ourselves, on myself, as a migrant, regardless of my experience or the memory of my history.

Let’s get back to where we are right now. Let’s pause and give ourselves a moment to appreciate this experience.

Let each of us, in his or her own uniqueness, allow the distance or the non-distance between those two states, those two moments, those two stories, those two beings.

Am I really, truly, as different in my migration as others imagined in their intended or not "migrant" condition?

What more can we say of this possible paradoxical revelation between the me-migrant and the other-you who is called "migrant"?

Don’t we have here, possibly, in this trivial experience, the statement of a phenomenon that reveals itself and reveals myself to my migrant-human condition?

It may result from this, according to a certain approach, the one we propose here, that our migrations unify and bring "us" closer together, following our diversities; you and I comprised of, or constituting, an anthropological phenomenality, the revelation of an ontology known as "migrations".

History itself could then be seen, perceived, interpreted as a migrant.

Why, then, should we still preserve or encourage a social, political, or religious self-righteousness around the cause, the category of "migrants"?

It seems to us that it is time, that the time has come, to appreciate that you and I are in migrations, unique migrants at the heart of our migrations, themselves a migration.
