MAN CHAIR (bad company featuring db indoš)

I would like to say something about the reasons for the 'unusual effort'. As you know, there is a Zoo in Zagreb, in the district called Maksimir, not far from my house. I often go bike riding in the park of Maksimir with my daughter Hana and her friends Zvonimir and Katarina, sometimes we also visit the Zoo. To the children this is a joyful experience, but do not ask me the reasons for justifying the incarceration of animals. (On the one hand the children's joy, on the other the dilemma and bitterness of the grown ups. How to accept this triumph of man over beast. Now we have touched upon the idea of the inferiority of the animal and plant world.

This 'unusual effort' is the reason for my/our resistance, furious resistance to God's product which is liable to damage, wounding, this construction made of bones, flesh, water, an all encompassing skin, the cause of all unnatural deaths, all the absence of the joy of dying a natural death in old age, this incessant possibility of dying at any moment, and all this mixed into the incessant feeling of life with the perspective of eternity and the absence of all mortality. What a hoax, maybe it was a mistake, maybe God was under the influence of an innocent frenzy. And like the wolves depicted on a panel next to their enclosure in the Zoo, first they resist, fight for leadership of the pack, but in the end they submit, falling to the ground with arms and legs spread wide, offering up their genitals to be sniffed by the leader, lowering their tails. So I/we, too, turning our chairs and ourselves into various positions, admit our defeat by God's work, at first resisting wildly, trying to grab God, with the tips of our fingers, trying to get him from the outside back into our head, our body taking him out of ourselves into the external.

What a wonderful example of practical philosophy induced by the idea of the resistant inferiority of the ' unusual effort'. And finally at 7 p.m. when the bell rings at the Zoo's closing time, the wolves gather in their pack howling, warning us of the essence of their habitat - the wilderness.

Now all is ready, all the reasons for a rebellion of one against all, the ceremony begins, communication will be established, and soon after it will disappear again.
