Minotaurus is a very strange being, with a human body and a taurine head, making you lose in its labyrinth in order to eat you without piety.
the loss of the orientation is the loss of the life, in this metaphor. Minotaur is the death, waiting we lose for taking us.
you can lose the sleep, the appetite, your friends, also the head for one moment, but never the orientation! otherwise, you will meet the Minotaurus
