In girum imus nocte ecce et consumimur igni

thoughts about what this may mean, especially interested in what @mercurial and @nightowl think:
Given an urgent value
and an appalling and beautiful permission
to disappear

I have no idea what you already know about it since you didn’t tell us, but here’s what I could figure out.

First off it’s a latin palindrome traceable back to the middle ages. It translates to “We go wandering at night and are consumed by fire”. It was said to be a poetic description of the behavior of moths.

As it’s a palindrome it can be read either backwards or forwards and will convey the same message.
