Idea synopsis:


Human being lives for 60, 70, 80 … years. But there is the extraordinary life we live for 9 months within some enigmatical space, before our birth. By means of necessary modern equipment we can observe what is happening there. It is clear seen that embryo moves, breathes, and what is more interesting – sees and feels all what happens around: he/she can perceives almost any signals coming from outside.


But what does he/she feel? And what is this life before life? Why do Chinese dao philosophies say:” Remember what did we were before our birth”? May be it is the Paradise Lost, which human being has looked for since his Exile?
