  2. In an ontological way, home is supposed to be the center of our world. Mircea Eliade describes home to be a place where the vertical line intersects the horizontal line. The vertical line connects the gods in the sky to the dead in the underworld. The horizontal line represents the traffic of the world and all the terrestrial journeys that an individual takes. Thus, at home, we are promised the reassurance of being close to the gods, ancestors, and the solace of being away from the chaos of the world. When an individual emigrates (forcefully or by choice) the center of the world is dismantled and disoriented one’s existence appears only in fragments.
