One day the man lost his heart. He became heartless. By undertaking the search for the heart that lives in the Sierra Alta, a third ear will have sprouted in us. In our capacity as narratees, a multiplicity of readings is opened: how to account for the story lines proposed here? Little by little, the transgressive nature of the narratives and the profound meaning of the experience and its memory impressions will be discovered.

What we offer here appeals to the narrator who listens with the heart, to an attentive and patient reading that makes the resonances of the voice and the reminiscences that indicate the timeliness of the life that we are leading his own. We will find the words of the old wise man, Don Miguel, and stories that subscribe to the surviving image of living experience. On this journey, the reader will encounter sadness and the disfigurement of human dignity, but also moments for the consolation of the spirit in the poetics of the world. An oscillation from darkness to light. Additionally, and with the help of anthropology, psychoanalysis and Spinoza's geometry of passions, a heuristic model is proposed for the analysis and interpretation of the narratives of homo fallible and pathos mathei.
