An alien comes to our planet and meets with several people. He meets an industrialist called Henry Rearden, a writer and poet called Oliverio Girondo, Gordon Gekko (a banker), Doug McKenzie (a garbage collector), a nurse called Ratched… etc. and a milonguero called Blas Catrenau…
What this alien will immediately perceive is the egalitarianism and spontaneity of the milonguero, who approaches him the same way he approaches everyone.
He will be surprised he even hugs him as a greeting.
Another aspect is the way the milonguero moves, his expressions, the way he walks: he seems easily in control of himself.
His words are sometimes a little cryptic. He speaks assuming that the alien understands what he is talking about.
However, he speaks with such comfortable self-confidence that the alien cannot avoid agreeing with Blas, even he does not know what Blas is talking about.
For Blas, and for any milonguero in general, it does not matter the way you look, your degrees, your wealth, or your job. If he has something to say about you, he would say it only if you ask his opinion, and only in regard to your dance.
Now you can continue on your own with this experiment.
Imagine any other characters (anyone you want to include) and let me know how you see the alien’s experience meeting them. You can write it here:
