The cave is a scene of continuous stratification. Stalactites and stalagmites grow continuously, tracing the excess. It is also the place that hosts early human traces, signs that are embedded in the future of history. But how do we deal with what are on the contrary the excesses of human history, those which we do not want to stay embedded within its future ?
