Alexander Nevzorov: "This
film represents a screen version of famous quotation by Einstein:
"Human mind which has once extended its borders can never go back to old
dimensions." It is a film about human mind capacity which has made it
clear that intelligence is not our exclusive possession. It is an
attribute of many mammals. If anyone nurtures illusions of this kind
they have to reshape their views."
The author claims:
Although in comparison with the rest of the animal world the class of
primates is inferior in everything: in speed, in strength, in reaction,
in hunting skills - still primates feel extremely jealous whenever
intelligence is concerned. People tend to view their mental abilities as
their differentiating feature and feel deeply hurt whenever, for
instance, mammals display theirs. The author disproves this myth in his
"Manege horse reading" is a translation
from Latin Lectio Equaria Palaestra - abbreviated variant - L.E.P. This
is a stunning method which claims: any horse can be taught to understand
alphabet and words and as a result to read. But it is a surface. The
true essence of this manege practice represents a human attempt to show a
horse that a teacher is an intelligent living being while the horse
demonstrates its mental abilities.
"When a horse comes into contact with a human for the first time it
faces another animal which is badly lacking any intelligence from its
point of view. Namely, it tries to cross interspecific barrier, produces
sounds which are perceived as wild as hippopotamus's shrieks by a
horse. Believe me the horse gets no more information from a human voice.
To crown it all, the inadequate creature called a human makes the horse
perform some strange actions or even worse uses forceful coercion.
Manege reading practices enable a man to demonstrate his intelligence
to the horse".
What will happen to a man deprived of
any "human" skills such as reading and writing? Why do we think of
animals watching some human actions? How will any human be capable of
self expression without hands or a tongue? What severe trials did the
medieval scientists have to go through in order to carry on with their
researches of human essence and brain? The new film by Alexander
Nevzorov is intended to answer these and many other questions.
