{Existence is full of unbearable lightness, because each of us has only one life to live: Einmal ist keinmal (once is nonce: "what happened once might never have happened at all"). Therefore, each life is, ultimately, insignificant; every decision, ultimately, does not matter. Since decisions do not matter, they are light: they do not bind, yet simultaneously, the insignificance of our decisions — our lives, our being — is unbearably light.}
I'd like to know how you understand the "lightness of being" please.
Many thanks! 
Merci beaucoup!
