Christmas 1914 and the guns fall silent for a short time along the so-called Western Front. At five locations British and German soldiers play football.

The thinker

If at the bottom of everything there were only a wild ferment, a power that twisting in dark passions produced everything great or inconsequential; if an unfathomable insatiable emptiness lay hid beneath everything, what would life be but despair?

Soeren Kierkegaard

The thinker

and the truth.

O do not fear and tremble
for the proof!

Each thing now belongs
To the one who now has it.

The genii will obey
The fool with the ring.

Who holds the world's treasures
holds the world's treasures.

Why indifferent rules?
Why irrational fools?
Why imperfect world?

O do not fear and tremble
for the truth!
