However, before pursuing this argument, we should understand what Lefebvre meant when he said we have to use the body as a metronome for rhythms. His purpose is to qualify these rhythms. Time becomes reversible because everyday life introduces continuity and a feeling that time will always repeat, without beginning and, above all, without end. I cannot access the balcony. To complete this experiment, I would like to add some reflections on the spatiality of rhythms.

If I have succeeded, perhaps I will be able to offer an interpretation of what occurred in this place, in its continuity and change, during the last twenty years. How can changes in everyday life be perceptible in its rhythms? Death is eliminated from everyday life. Here we achieve a rhythmic definition of place, which is able to take into account the changing temporality of place through repetition and difference and establishes its identity with rhythmic features persisting over time.
