-"I keep thinking about something you said.
-- Something I said?
- Yeah.
-About how you often feel like you're observing your life...from the perspective of an old woman about to die.
-- You remember that?
- Yeah. I still feel that way sometimes.Like I'm looking back on my life.Like my waking life is her memories.

-I heard that Tim Leary said as he was dying...that he was looking forward to the moment...when his body was dead,but his brain was still alive.
-They say that there's still 6 to 12 minutes of brain activity after everything is shut down.And a second of dream consciousness, right?
-well, that's infinitely longer than a waking second.
-You know what I'm saying?
- Oh, yeah, definitely.
-For example, I wake up and it's 10:12,and then I go back to sleep
and I have those long, intricate,beautiful dreams that seem to last for hours,and then I wake up and it's... 10:13.
-Exactly. So then 6 to 12 minutes of brain activity.I mean, that could be
your whole life.I mean, you are that woman looking back over everything.
-Okay, so what if I am?
Then what would you be in all that?
-Whatever I am right now.I mean, yeah,maybe I only exist in your mind.I'm still just as real as anything else. Mr. Green

- I've been thinking also about something you said.
- What's that?
-Just about reincarnation and where all the new souls come from over time.Everybody always say that they've been the reincarnation...of Cleopatra or Alexander the Great.I always want to tell them they were probably some dumb fuck like everybody else.I mean, it's impossible.
Think about it.The world population has doubled in the past 40 years, right?- So if you really believe in that ego thing of one eternal soul,
Mm-hmm.then you only have a 50% chance of your soul being over 40.And for it to be over 1 50 years old, then it's only one out of six.
-So what are you saying then?
Reincarnation doesn't exist...?
or that we're all young souls like where
half of us are first-round humans?
-No, no. What I'm trying to say is that somehow I believe...reincarnation is just a poetic expression of what collective memory really is.
There was this article by this biochemist that I read not long ago,and he was talking about how when a member of a species is born,it has a billion years of memory to draw on.And this is where we inherit our instincts.
-this whole telepathic thing going on that we’re all a part of,whether we’re
conscious of it or not.That would explain why there's all these, you know,seemingly spontaneous, worldwide,innovative leaps in science,in the arts.You know, like the same results poppin'up everywhere independent of each other."


uputstvo za upotrebu za one koji nisu gledali a trebalo bi Mr. Green:pogledati jednom "budne pazhnje", zatim razmisliti, pogledati opet ali sa zaustavljanjem na pojedine delove koji vam se chine manje jasni jer umeju da budu konfuzni nekad u filmu/ali to nije razlog da ih vi ne razumete, zatim papir i olovku pa delove koji vam se dopadaju zapishete, pa prochitate u sebi,pa naglas Mr. Green smešak pa se onda zapitate neke stvari, pa onda trec'i put gledate film kao vizuelno umetnichko delo(obratiti pazhnu na scenu kad se gl. junaku mute brojke na satu///ko zna zashto je to dobro Razz)

za one koji nisu gledali "kashichica" o snovima
+obratiti pazhnju na: what is anger, or love....?

i'll just laugh ... Razz (alright, alright..!) and smile smešak

I really love this part:
"...About how you often feel like you're observing your life... from the perspective of an old woman about to die..."

Although, generally, I prefer these:

- Excuse me.
- Excuse me.
- Hey. Could we do that again? I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant. You know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner. "Here's your change." "Paper or plastic?' "Credit or debit?" "You want ketchup with that?" I don't want a straw. I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up. I don't want to be an ant, you know?


"The reason why I refuse to take existentialism as just another French fashion or historical curiosity is that I think it has something very important to offer us... I'm afraid we're losing the real virtues of living life passionately in the sense of taking responsibility for who you are, the ability to make something of yourself and feel good about life. Existentialism is often discussed as if it were a philosophy of despair, but I think the truth is just the opposite. Sartre, once interviewed, said he never felt once minute of despair in his life. One thing that comes out from reading these guys is not a sense of anguish about life so much as a real kind of exuberance, of feeling on top of it, it's like your life is yours to create. I've read the post modernists with some interest, even admiration, but when I read them I always have this awful nagging feeling that something absolutely essential is getting left out. The more you talk about a person as a social construction or as a confluence of forces or as being fragmented of marginalised, what you do is you open up a whole new world of excuses. And when Sartre talks about responsibilty, he's not talking about something abstract. He's not talking about the kind of self or souls that theologians would talk about. He's talking about you and me talking, making descisions, doing things, and taking the consequences. It might be true that there are six billion people in this world, and counting, but nevertheless -what you do makes a difference. It makes a difference, first of all, in material terms, to other people, and it sets an example. In short, I think the message here is that we shouuld never write ourselves off or see eachother as a victim of various forces. It's always our decision who we are."


"The worst mistake that you can make is to think you're alive when really you're asleep in life's waiting room."
