Description of Sub Specie Aeternitas.

 

Sub Specie Aeternitatis (Latin for "under the aspect of eternity") is an honorific expression describing what is universally and eternally true, without any reference to or dependence upon the temporal portions of reality (Baruch Spinoza).

 

In clearer english, Sub Specie Aeternitatis roughly means "from the perspective of the eternal". Even more loosely, the phrase is used to describe an alternative or objective point of view. This performance expresses the struggle for human to relate to others.
