Fata Morgana means mirage and visions of the subconscious, and is also the druid witch who represents divine wisdom, depositary of the primitive revelation.

According to Stephen Hawking, the world we live in, with its planets and galaxies, is contained within an enormous bubble, whose surface gives off other smaller bubbles that occasionally give rise to new universes. This concept is the central idea of this magical opera: a bubble, symbolizing birth, rebirth, the bubble of space, time.

Jocy de Oliveira believes Liturgia do Espaco to be a "cosmic allegory," questioning human beings in the light of the celestial spectacle. T.S. Eliot gave her the first key: "Time present and time past are both perhaps present in time future."
