Başar, who had learned that we are tiny but clever beings on a rotating round object as he was born in Istanbul in 1981; was growing up just like everyone else. He was aware that nothing made anyone special… He became Superman as he jumped across armchairs, his urge revealed on the song of the Ghost Busters and he watched Eagle's Shadow in his grandma's arms. At his early ages, with the crosswords that his grandma pretended to solve together with him, he realized that he was living in crossword puzzles… He learned that the world he existed in, differed from the world existed inside him. He learned to learn, he learned their lies, and he learned to act, to live, the scarcity, the hunger and the unfairness… He learned to believe them; he saw that TV captured the world; he learned from his public to deify boxes with believed things inside. He learned that he is included in a race, he belongs to something; then, he learned that something divided into billions was not in one part. He learned that he was a student; he learned that the world lived; he dreamed that there were kids inside the animals; he became a vegetarian; he learned new things at the cost of forgetting what he knew.
