The Aleph

In Borges' story, the Aleph is a point in space that contains all other points. Anyone who gazes into it can see everything in the universe from every angle simultaneously, without distortion, overlapping, or confusion. The story traces the theme of infinity found in several of Borges' other works, such as "The Book of Sand". wikipedia


The aleph holds a special meaning with mystical Judaism, being the first character of the Hebrew alphabet. Something known for being The One. The origin.

A wellspring for creative genius.

The aspiration of the Monadic Mind.
