The word “nostalgia” comes from two Greek roots: νόστος, nóstos (“return home”) and ἄλγος, álgos (“longing”). I would define it as a longing for a home that has never existed.", written by Svetlana Boym in "The Future of Nostalgia”. It also links to the Indo-European root “nes”, which means "returning to the light and life”. Thus the home here is the matrix of human beings beyond time and space.
