n 1998, the author was a voluntary gynaecologist at the Camillus-Mission “Hospital” in Tabaka, Kenya, and relives the enchantment he felt when he saw his first sunrise over the Kenyan highlands as “a quarter sun”, “a half sun”, “three- quarters sun” and the “whole sun” appeared. Immediately afterwards in the delivery room he experienced a personal Eidesic enchantment when he watched a Kenyan baby being born, as its face emerged in a similar way with “a quarter face”, “half face”, “three-quarters face” and a “whole face” embraced by the genital lips of his mother, which seals the first imprinting of motherly love that every mother knows how to give unconditionally. In the silence of his room, his thoughts fluctuated from Oneiresis to Eidesis while his senses remained enchanted, as if being shown on a mental film, and his perceptive Aesthesiology developed into Timo-psychic, Ideoplasic Eidesiology with an intense Euthymic content. The Author would like to acknowledge all the Camillian medical missionaries all over the world and thank them for their warm hospitality at Tabaka (Kisii) and at Karungu, on the shores of lake Victoria in Kenya.
