Can I get you guys anything else?
00:29
Can I have some more water? Sure.

No problem.
00:32
(Woman) Excuse me.

Yes? Can you read this to him?

I'm sorry? Just read this
00:35
to him please.
00:41
It can't be, there's,
00:47
man is a sensitive creature,
00:49
it has just two legs, but one heart,
00:54
in which an army of thoughts and sensations live.
01:00
You could compare man to a well produced feel-good garden.
01:05
Man is a creative creature, that sometimes wastes time
01:09
on meaningless passions,
01:11
(emotional instrumental music) just to kill
01:13
all well-being and good there is.
01:19
This is a mystery,
01:21
but man does stand above all other animals.
01:29
It's nice you like my drawings at all,
01:31
but there's something else going on with you.

You seem really bent out of shape or something.

(Woman) I used to have a boat, my own boat.
02:24
A big nice either sailing boat or like a nice ship,
02:27
I don't know yet, I have to choose it I guess.
02:36
I have all these children as my crew,
02:38
a little bit like Wendy and Peter Pan.
02:47
And I guess I will make some of,
02:49
make some of my creative stuff.
02:51
But if I have the boat, then I could make my creative stuff.
03:00
Man has just two legs, but one heart.
03:05
And when I really started to love him,
03:07
a strange fear built inside me.
03:18
Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief
03:21
that someone or something is dangerous,
03:24
likely to cause pain.

05:30
We can do all you want.
05:31
