Monkey is not Enough

May 21, 2011

Monkey is not enough, I told them. Monkey is just dog who can wear pants but does not. Now we know fingers can go in space and can push buttons there. But can human mind go in space? this we don’t know.

The solution? Was easy at high level. I refused to tell them. I said one day I will be dead, you need to learn to think. Now it is 50 years later and I am still alive and they are all gone. Perhaps thinking is the best exercise.

They looked at me fiercely over my coffee. But I had already been in gulag. Gulag didn’t work on me. I have always been untouchable. Maybe I will never die. We’ll see.

After three weeks I said solution is easy: send novel in space. They flapped their hands like little fishes. But which novel? they said and now I was really furious.

Any great Russian novel contains the whole human mind!!!! Go to bookstore, find book with sturdy spine.

“The Devils” was the first man in space.

    That’s my book you’re talking about, man. Or my home, I guess.

    Wish I could go into Space.
