The ancient Greek word metaxú is an adverb comprising metá (in the middle, between) and sún (with, together, together with), thus denoting a space that lies between, and connects. The word itself contains two antithetical meanings linked together: on one hand it implies the concepts of distance and separation, while on the other it expresses a drawing near, a connection.
