please read this one with proper ending so far
the problem is they talk so much, i think to do inserts during the time
so they are not seen transfixed.

Part 1: Viaggio in Cosmo, by Roberto Rosselini as the Owl
Title: An Ecclipse
DAY. In a blue key room in downtown Vancouver, the Owl and six actors:
Havah, Adama, Lilith, Filya Houtman, Bart Twains & Walt Disney

Rosselini as an Owl, flying around the six actors sitting on a sofa. His
eyes are recording what he is gazing at. We are getting to see through
his eyes. He recedes to one side of the blue room. Lilith stands up and
approaches the window bay, using her two hands as telescope.

                       The Planet Gulliver -- ´t´his is something big
earthlike, could be very productive, strong and useful
 is obscuring the star
			of Slumberland.     -- so people are sleeping in a comfortable way
 Contact with the Mirroring
 Past is rapidly arising.        -- The past "last like an alp on the
conciusness of the living" (Marx quote out of mempry.
                                    Also we see our experiences as hammeded
by the strong happpenings of the pasz or the 						during infliunce of long
past habits and sourroundings
                                    This is a little bit Deleuze Guattari
subjectivation and soul experience theory.

 The Ecclipse
                  -- This is very old and good idea, Shared by
Deleuze and Guattari,
                                   take awy the obstacle and the flow of
light or contact
					 	with the productive will come.

			Make sure everybody in this room   -- There is only learining and contact
to the "real" if you are awake
			remembers how to stay awake.

Rosselini makes a complete turn and shouts “Music!” to the sound  --- he is
well equipped, good that he has an engeneer
                                                                      and so
not to turn the radi on himself. Maybe there 											    are some more
advanced technical deeds to do.
engeneer. A radio is turned on, a faint radio noise eshews.

			By all means resist the sound of the powerful       -- That are often
called some kind of sirenes of 													Ulysses - say sleeping,
slumbering struggelded
												 pained concoiusness.

 												Or the cosmic help by fine brain tissue,
sight and feeling of the world beyond everday 												little trouble -
and the chance to turn everday life 												a little bit more fine,
tissue, cosmic like.

                    Cosmo radios! They can numb you out of activity.

			Now everyone start digging the ground while -- that is also a old idea,
fist we have to dig the ground, 											solve all unsolved problems,
having the absolute right 											theory about everything, to work hard.
That are the 												"Philosphical workes" of Nietzsche - and Deleuze
/(who ma 											ythought to be one himsdelf). That is because we are not
so 											happy and satisfied with the thories that we think, we
already have enough insights.  Or deep inside it is not 											allowed
to be awaked and happy without digging and working.
											Or the experience that digging and working makes us more
strong and awake - if is not dumb work and digging.
											Maybe we think, we have to seek "within the depth of the
body" (Deleutze, logic of sense)

			Filya comes here

Actors raise up and begin to move blue painted clothes from a big heave
next to the sofa and scatter them all around the room.    -- that maybe
become clear later.
 Rosselini is
with his two eyes.                       -- So it is stored in his memory,
with his insights and feelings accompanied.
Then he gets impatient.

			Filya, what are you waiting for?  -- That is aöso a old good idea --
Waiting for Godot?

Filya was distracted. She crosses the distance between her and Rosselini --
so she didn't wait. We are always distracted, 													mostly without
noticing it.
on the other side of the room. She is filmed by Rosselini’s eyes in
close shot.                                                    -- Looks like
he is expecteng something from her, or he likes 											close shot

She speaks in a microphone that she handles herself.   -- In the background
the sound engeneer?

			Roberto Rosselini reappeared among us
			in the eternal present passing and becoming.  -- eternal is interesting,
but present i sknown to everbody.
											Old problem - present and enternety. Eternity is in every
present - also guaranteeing that there is present 												eternally.

his eyes films
6 actors he has casted to
			play in his new movie: Viaggio in Cosmo.

- Mister Rosselini, can you tell the audience what
			are you doing in the gait of an owl?		-- What has he to do with "eternal"

                       Let me answer you in the form of a riddle:
                       Today’s art
                   becomes each day more childish. Everybody has
                     the mad desire to be the most childish possible.
                 I don’t say ingenuous, I say childish. By childishness
                      we have fallen to the lowest end of the human
											-- That is the idea of psychic regression - freudian. It
maybe of help if there is a state of psychich growth which 											has to
make good, but if it is only regression by repetion 											and staying
in thsi state it is like an cutting off of 											higher intelligence,
personality and feelings.
											The last is what rosselini indicates.
                    We have passed to the antropomorphic ape. We soon
             will be passed to the owl and to the eel. That’s what     --
Suddenly the philosphical owl becomes a real owl
              makes me angry! This total lack of shame.

		But this is more or less what you said to Fereydoun
             Hoveyda and Eric Rhomer in Cahiers du Cinéma of 1963.   -- Is
rosslini at the stage of 1963 or reality.
saituation is still the unchanged same?
             What  have you been doing since 1977, the year you

artworks, in the eternal return zone that I am about to show you. And I
want to revive this longing for life on earth by working with
contemporaneous actors and talk in such a new movie about the posthumous
activity of the artist.

Filya passes to the side. Rosselini watches the actors still carrying
clothes “digging the ground”. His focus calibrates and the blue of the
room and of the clothes leaves way to a different landscape.       -- new
calibrating gives new sights - also a question of 												mental
strates, micro, medium and macro.

Title: IN ETERNAL RETURN ZONE.                                   -- In

surprising that holographic sculptures are able 												to dig real

		What is touching, is the weakness of mankind.
		It is not man’s force. In modern life, man has
		lost all heroic feeling about life. It must be brought
		back to him, since man is a hero. The daily life
		struggle, is a heroic struggle. In order to paint
		this, one must start from the bottom.
												-- There maybe some heroic struggle and regretfull it
takes place in everday life. A good strategy would be 												to ban
heroic struggle, which would be not so good 												for everday life, to
phantasy, reflection, inner 												struggle, acvity or something. The
need to have something to throw onnes "Gulliver" heroism on it should be
possibly pondered over. What would be worhwhile and fruitful to let the hero
on us, which maybe also a little "ungestüm" - bewilderd, withot stratregy.
Often people which share some feelings and insights have to face this hero.
Then theirer hero so busy with our hero. And the rest of the world stays as
she are. As Nietzsvche put: "Yor maybe wrong withiut to much harm in the
choice of your friends, but a wrong choice in the chioice of your enemy
maybe very harmfull." The most intellegigent choice of enemy is in my eyes
to leave personal hostility as much a as possible. Different interests are
mostly overcome by general accepted ways.
There is a picture of Nietzsche, a wild bull, who has net yet learned to
DIG. I prefer the also used picture of Nietzsche of the gardener of oneself.
And here heroism is very good to be the very last ultma ratio. --

The stone of lava around the two lovers crackles and two orang-outangs
monkeys emerge the archeological remains of Pompeï. -- Is that the stae of
mankind, the orang untangs

outlook - lok the inner quality - dont forget 											 the powder.
		I feel I would need to talk in private with Roberto.

Roberto Rosselini flyes to an other place, Ingrid follows him there.
			What do you have on the skull Ingrid. Tell it all.

			I fear we could destroy what we achieved in the past -- very defensive

			But the trouble is our past work has been already partly
                     destroyed by the lack of courage in new generations
                     artists. We must restart with the perspective
   -- I don't think so. A lot of 															modern artists,
being more a lot as at the time of
																Rosselini,    													are very creative and good.

                     mind that
                   the Cosmos is not always evolutive in the good sense

			Why have we become orang-outangs?

			Because we have sacrificed our human development
			on the altar of a vilifying subjectivation. Modern day  -- that are
missed chances. Maybe 													by wrong use of
													heroism and habits. But that is 													very
 												differentiated.  But of course there has been
evolution of mankind - maybe not so much as 													possible.
			audiences are not capable to understand us otherwise.

			Is Cinema a zoo?
-- The idea of evolution is also liberated from a unique goal. But I think,
the evolution of the potential of the human body and mind in everyone has
asomething like a high reachable niveau, which to achieve and to generalize
is something like this unique goal. The "own ways" are often stoppings of a
way  at all. The way has to be very broad and solid, and this broadness and
solidness is the goal.
Then the world will become also more broad or generous, a lot o of
understanding  and solid - without fear.
-- -- hw
			We must confront this possibility. But as I said earlier
				we should look for the possibilities of liberation
			immanent to this new condition on Earth. That is the
				purpose of such a movie as “Viaggio In Cosmo”.

The six holographic actors approach Rosselini.

So we have explored the area. It seems pretty much uncertain with the
Vesuvio frightening the monkeys, always on the brink of a new scandalous

Bart Twains and Walt Disney are right about one thing,
we are not protected from the volcano. So we will go
mount an expedition to the archives database to cover Pompeï with
shields props from the Death Star movies.                    -- The death is
more present in the movie than
 											in real probability.

                BART TWAINS
No need to mount an expedition, I have the files, you just have to
upload the shields into the image properties of the antiquities.

Bart Twains gives materials to the monkeys, who start building a steel
city above the ruins of Pompeï.							-- steel is solid, but has to be
creative to
													make such a city comfortabble.


Roberto who are the monkeys, for you, in your storyworld?


   			Someone said monkeys are for humans a burst of
                       laughter or a hurting shame.                  -- As
far as I know, monkeys are not so
												much human like as we would like.
												I think both  reactions in regard of
 												monkeys and ourselves are
											overwhelmed. --
But look at me:
                            I am an owl, and thus a creature of the
                             or of the Ecclipse. Thus my past life, my
				past philosophy is not convenient for me
                            anymore. I do movies that are not for
                            humans.							-- If it is for surhumans, it
 													be fine --

			To be dead for such a long time, and to awaken in the
			gait of animal is making me so instable. I am longing
                            to reestablish contact with the human actors
                          any set, I find it absurd the monkeys should
                             behave as slaves and build a city over the
                             ruins of

                  and a monkey could well seed, escaping to the
                             of existing monkeys and possibly existing
                            in a steel armoured city?

                        I was trying to figure it all why were humans
                     shaped holographically in this movie, and I just
                     got it:
                           there are strong doubts casted here against
                           viability of staying wholly oneself in such
                             enslavering  environment. They use the  -- this

                                 protective shields.

                      Yes, but doubts, mind you: no definitive
                      conclusion. What
                       would humans look like once gazed at by the
                       perception of
                 external wild animals, that we still need to become by --
this necessety is not obvious at
													all to me --
                way, what could such humans look like: or reversedly
                what are
              we, as we are watched by such all encompassing human eye,
                 as much technologically powered would he have evolved

In my eyes, there is a lot Deleuze and Guattari in it, some known and by
your treatment a little doubtfoul made "archetyps" of "eternal aesthetics".
If I see films, that have impressed me much in my youth, I also often got
the impression, that they are not
so legendary as they are praised even by film critics. It is much more
actualll "time spirit" in it,
even i´f the films themselves often try to avoid this.
Even the sky of dreams and imaginations depends much on the real actual
This is also a little bit the casee in the reading of Hölderlin, who for
nowadays is very, very idealistic in an abstract sense.

Putting all together, I find it very good, waht you have written.
The real survival is much more worth than an "eternity" by being a member of
the hall of fame.
