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?
