The experience of borders and the overcoming of borders can be understood as cultural techniques, which, for example, in the times of great discoveries, led to the fact that not only maps had to be redrawn but also entire views of the world had to be fundamentally reformulated. Borders mark an inside and an outside, they are formative contours for existential facts. Boundaries are dynamic and therefore never final, only death represents an ultimate boundary. According to Karl Jaspers, experiences of borderline situations lead to inner transformations that promote "the becoming of an existence possible within us". We develop manners that are beneficial to our own sovereignty.
