So many Questions for the curious type

Note: I re-edited this article of 2011 “Questions, questions…Quit it! What do I know?” Actually, I am re-editing older articles that viewers are reminding me of them. Adding, correcting and updating.

At what moment eyes see?

“My new-born girl, my new-born grandchild taught me how seeing come to be.  The first few days, the new-born had vague vision.  The looking eyes focused on me, gradually acquiring primitive thinking.  Suddenly, I recognize an elaborate thinking in the eyes:  The new-born is seeing me! The vision has a meaning now” (Medical professor Yves Pouliquen).

(You can’t shed this feeling Not to be true, whatever sciences confirm)

What is the power of beauty?

“Beauty has immense power of illumination:  It is a counter-poison to reality.  Beauty permits you to appreciate reality and to love living.  Beauty resides in the domain of the dreams, an invention of the mind, a mental construct to survive.  The two dreams of beauty and love are real since we are capable of dedicating our life to them.  Beauty necessarily contains a large portion of what we consider as truth”.  (Academician Jean-Marie Rouart)

(Falling in love is transferred to failing to sleep, but Love is a notion that is consequent to consistent caring and compassion)

Are we born a man?

“We are born female.  We are inducted into manhood by rituals and customs.  It is a harsh process of indoctrination” (Eric Zemmour)

(I tend to rally to that conjecture since we are taken care of by mostly women in our upbringing. Obviously high testosterone level  might change the done in adulthood by succumbing peer-pressure and emulating the male antics)

Is writing a smile or a lament?

“Writing is our way of nodding agreement to what has taken place.  Writing is an approving prayer, a positive confirmation” (Author and politician Marc Lambron)

( I say: Voyons! Un bon livre vaut une vie: ce serait une vie pour les future generations)

Is life a real product, a scenario, or a stage production?

“Life is remodeled and sculpted every day.  Life is revisited constantly:  the dialogue, the sequence…in the stage production and are altered at each new location.  You change the location of the scene and the entire script acquires a different meaning, an alternative perspective on life” (Movie director Elie Chouraqui)

Does the past reserves surprises?

“It is mostly past recollections that extend surprises for the transformation of our stories.  Feelings are constantly metamorphosed:  What seemed like glorious best moments can become the worst events in our memory.” (Author Jean-Paul Einthoven)

Still pictures or videos?

Once we click on the camera the picture is already from the past.

If we could learn how to analyse still pictures and the emotions that transpire, our diaries and auto-biographies are enhanced in frankness and openness. Why pictures in auto-biographies are of the happy moments among family and friends?

Are we trying to hide our real feelings from the intelligent readers?

Noble beautiful feelings? Cultural acquisition? Do animals have any?

French movie director, Jean-Jacques Annaud, asked the question: “Are Noble beautiful feelings a cultural attraction? Do you think animals are governed by just instincts“?  He answered:

“Animals don’t have but beautiful feelings:  They may kill for the pleasure of it. In one of my movies, “The Bear”, my bear turned out to be afraid of trouts.  I blocked the river and discharged a truckload of trouts:  the bear would not return to his cage until he destroyed all the trouts.  Many carnivorous animals kill for the feeling of power.

I lived with primitive tribes:  They don’t necessarily have noble feelings.

In the countryside, every creature kills what he can kill, and every creature is fundamentally on the defensive and guarding their territory for safety and security. Plants get protection surrounded with thorn…

Mammalian species have strong attraction to their offspring:  The babies are part of the mother flesh and possession.

Mankind has managed to forget that they are to live forever: Man do not use the instinct of giving birth for survival purposes and keeping the lineage as animals do.

The French biologist, Jean Rostand wrote in 1930: ” We have to accept mixing, in order to survive“.  Without accepting others, regardless of color, race…there is no way to survive.

I observed a goose mourning its dead little swan for 15 days, coming to the same location and crying its sadness. The same goose drowned 18 of my small ducks so that to preserve earth worms to its offspring.  It is like a man killing a bunch of “invaders” who robbed their apple orchard.

Mankind has fabricated his own food stuff, and thus, opted to stealing milk, eggs, fish,…being at the highest food chain. Elephants venture to particular elephant cemetery to die, as Eskimo get drowned in cold water to finish their old life.”

Do you have any replies to Jean-Jacques Annaud?

Jean-Jacques Annaud answered a bunch of questions in the interview with Sabine de Bustros and Loris Moutran.  Here are samples of responses:

Life is very clear.  Life is the answer to our queries and not the basis for our questions.  Eternity is materialized in such forces as electromagnetism…All chemical components of the living and inanimate objects keep their cycles of recombining to get transformed into other living subjects.

Nothing cannot be communicated, and music is the best medium to communicate feelings that we cannot express otherwise.

Fear is the result of incomprehension:  The moment we have doubt about ourselves, it becomes difficult to comprehend the other point of view.  For example, if you do not express fear to animals, they retreat.

Smiling is a very beautiful gesture: Smiling suggest openness to the others we meet; it is an invitation to be kissed.  Beauty is almost everything that is functional and working fine.  Every civilization and every period has its own criteria for beauty.

Decency is the incapacity to showing emotions.  Emotions have an eternal characteristic because they are very primitive impulses in our brain, such as rhythms.  Getting ready to leave is an urge to experiencing new discoveries.

I love the rise of the moon at 11 pm in summertime.

The book that I will keep on an island is the encyclopedia.

The word “failure” can generate storms in me.  I try to avoid saying “Yes” because you feel like a traitor if you change your mind; I prefer saying “No” to every query and then thinking and reflecting on the question before changing my mind.

If I have to give an image to a lie, what comes to my mind is a bird with long, heavy feathers that prevent him from flying, such as the colibri.

Do you have any replies to Jean-Jacques Annaud?
