To have a way with the emptiness. My purpose is to think about "event" as ethical chance. Event is not simple occurrence (Spinoza’s occursus). We must consider, among several hab-its that take place in our everyday life, event as "a sign inside what happens, facing my own oneness" as Gilles Deleuze claims. So, was Covid a real event? Or a simple, even if tremen-dous, occursus? This is the first question I put. My second main issue is about time: how is time in event? Can we consider it as a result of a "project"? Opposite, I argue it’s an empty time, similar to platonic hexaiphnes (instant), a sort of timeless between, breaking the tradi-tional arrow of time we usually experience, where "nothing takes place" (Deleuze). Finally, event as between-time, requests an ethical choice for each of us, as a single subject. Moreo-ver, a real event "makes us" as subjects. So, what’s an ethical behaviour? To be able to face an empty space of time among the crowd of habits and occurrences.
